Securing a shared future for wildlife and people

Pak Boon is going very well with her pregnancy. We are now at 652 days of gestation. An elephant’s pregnancy is the longest in the animal kingdom. We are watching her very closely as the birth draws nearer. She still takes part in daily exercise routines of walking and stretching which keeps her weight down and keeps her body in good condition which is important during the birth process. She has been spending a lot of time with Luk Chai taking in the afternoon sun while they pick at stray bits of grass that grow out under the fence line. Spending time with the calves is great preparation for when she has a calf of her own.

Elephant Keeper: Joel.
