Bertrand Bouchard

Although originating from a long descent of wine makers, Bertrand Bouchard exchanged grapes for large wild mammals graduating as a veterinarian specialising in conservation medicine. He commenced work with ElefantAsia in 2008 spending three years in the field caring for elephants and training mahouts with his Lao colleagues. Currently working at the French Research National Center, Bertrand still supports our veterinary work as a member of our Board of Directors. He also supervises applied research on elephant infectious diseases (herpes virus, tuberculosis,...), welfare, genetics and reproduction... and moonlights as a vintner on the side!
