Auckland Zoo elephants Anjalee and Burma will soon be moving to their new zoo homes in Australia – Anjalee to Taronga Western Plains Zoo, and Burma to Australia Zoo.
As we shared last November, lockdowns, travel restrictions and the overall complications of a global pandemic meant their planned moves had to be delayed.
Things are now back on track and all continuing to go well, Anjalee will move in early March, and Burma in late April.
Both elephants will be accompanied by members of our extraordinarily dedicated elephant team. They will be staying on with them and will provide that familiar and reassuring presence as they work alongside their Australian colleagues to help fully settle them in as they meet their new family herds.
