Equid semen importation

SEZARC is partnering with Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to develop a protocol for importation of Somali wild ass and onager semen from United Arabs Emirates and Australian zoos to the U.S.

Supported by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Equid taxonomic advisory group, we are currently in discussions with zoos in the UAE and Australia to see if we can accomplish this goal. In the interim, we are developing techniques for cryopreservation of Somali wild ass semen and have assisted Chester Zoo, UK with an onager semen collection and support for artificial insemination.
