Improving the lives of captive elephants

Our research has improved the lives of elephants held in captivity worldwide. Dr Lisa Yon of the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science was tasked by the UK government to work in partnership with UK zoos and safari parks to better understand how to improve the welfare of the elephants in their care.
