Taronga’s Asian Elephants awoke to a special treat yesterday morning, as their keepers had put fresh mud in the wallow, and the cooler weather and afternoon showers brought the perfect opportunity to test it out.
This commemorative day takes place every year on 13 March, the aim of the day is to draw attention to one of the most remarkable species on our planet.
See how taronga's herd celebrated their national day.
With the weather getting warmer, both the elephant calves have been going into the pool more often. They’re playing really well together and Pathi Harn tries to clamber onto Luk Chai’s back. It’s just as well that Luk Chai’s trunk functions well as a snorkel.
