Meet our female Asian Elephant calf

To celebrate the birth of a female Asian Elephant calf at Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo, we would like your help in choosing a name for her.

Names suggested for the female calf should have a Thai origin and meaning provided. Be sure to tell us in 25 words or less why you think the name you suggested should win.

Entries close 5pm on 5 July 2018.

Major Prize

The winner will receive a family stay at Zoofari Lodge for two adults and two children in an Animal View Lodge, a behind-the-scenes experience with the elephant keepers to meet the Asian Elephant calf and an annual Zoo Friends membership.

Tips for suggesting a name

All of Taronga’s elephants came from Thailand so we would like to respect their heritage and give the female calf a Thai name with a suitable meaning for our newest addition to the herd. Please view the terms and conditions for full naming criteria.
