    How Ferrets Are Helping Researchers Battle Covid-19

    How Ferrets Are Helping Researchers Battle Covid-19

    THEY ARE ADORABLE ANIMALS with little furry faces, and they’re playful and cuddly. But ferrets can catch and spread disease to humans, which is one reason many jurisdictions in the U.S. have banned them as pets. In an infectious disease lab, however, that same viral vulnerability can make the common ferret an asset — perhaps now more than ever. In the worldwide race to develop treatments and vaccines for Covid-19, researchers need animals in which to observe the illness and challenge it with interventions. And it turns out that ferrets are vulnerable to the same respiratory infections that impact humans — including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. A study published earlier this month concluded that ferrets can carry and pass on the disease, and get sick with it as well, developing fevers and losing their appetites.

    The First-Ever Cloned Black-Footed Ferret Could Save Its Species

    The First-Ever Cloned Black-Footed Ferret Could Save Its Species

    Elizabeth Ann made history just over a year ago as the first-ever cloned black-footed ferret. She was created from the cells of another black-footed ferret that died 35 years ago, named Willa. She was born from a surrogate ferret and, just over a year later, has achieved sexual maturity, one of the first clones of an endangered species to do so. Now that Elizabeth Ann is of breeding age, conservation biologists hope to use her to help save the species from extinction. It will be the first time cloning has been successfully integrated into such an endeavor. Due to their small population size, the wild ferret colonies are currently suffering from inbreeding, decreasing their genetic diversity and reproductive fitness. Elizabeth Ann's DNA contains multiple forms of genes found throughout the breeding program's inbred ferrets. It is hoped that her children will help reinvigorate the genetic viability of black-footed ferrets. Currently, she resides at a conservation center near Fort Collins, Colorado, and scientists are seeking a compatible mate for her.
