Why is it important to get Tang Mo pregnant?

Tang Mo, along with four other adult Asian Elephants was brought to Taronga Zoo from Thailand in 2006 to establish the first Conservation Breeding Program for their species in Australasia.

Asian Elephants are endangered, with as few as 34,000 remaining in the wild. That’s why breeding programs around the world, including those at Taronga and Melbourne Zoos are vitally important to provide a safety net in case they go extinct in their home ranges.
