Our orphaned elephant does well. He is now two years old! It has certainly been an intensive period. He will continue to be milk dependant for another year or so, and then we will slowly wean him over the following year or two. We have moved him over to the old elephant compound that was originally constructed to house the 27 year old zoo-raised elephant (Nina) that we took from a zoo and reintroduced back into the wild.
The Tanzanian Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism recently signed a document which committed Tanzania to burning all their ivory stock piles. The document was also signed by a number of African countries at a big wildlife conference held in London two weeks ago. Prince Charles and Prince William hosted the meeting. So this is a step in the right direction and we will wait to see what happens.
