Live birth of elephants
Animal caretakers and staff all have faith in this daring initiative. Pjo Pjo is awaiting her third calf, which makes her an experienced mom. It is not known exactly when she was fertilised. The birth will take place either in February or May.
Camera’s have been placed in the Pjo Pjo’s stable, to broadcast the birth live. Visitors of the site can sign up to receive a text message when the birth is expected within the next two days. This is when the amount of pregnancy hormone goes down to zero. The birth can then be followed live from the site. Visitors of the site are also asked to pick a name for the baby elephant. The name has to start with a K.
