The zoo says it’s looking to add Asian elephants to join its two female Asian elephants, 42-year-old Bamboo and 35-year-old Chai. The 45-year-old African female Watoto must go.
The zoo said Friday the decision follows a six-month review of its elephant program. It plans to spend up to $3 million in the next five years to strengthen its Asian elephant program. It says it’s optimistic about adding to the herd in the near future.
