In Emmen Zoo a swapping of male giraffes has taken place. In April 2007, the male giraffe Nexus died. Emmen Zoo has been looking for a replacement for some time.
From the available male giraffes in Europe the four year old Boniface was chosen. He belonged to the Zoo of Pont-Scorff in France. The two year old Chilose from Emmen will now move to France. The transport and loading of the giraffes all went well. The zookeepers are full of praise for the beautiful French Giraffe. If all goes well “Bono” as his nickname has become, can soon be spotted on the Africa savannah.
