Zoo Zürich’s six elephants have been living in the Kaeng Krachan Elephant Park since the middle of March 2014. This has given them plenty of time to get used to all the innovative features of their new environment. Firstly, they have six times as much room as they did before, as well as several different watering holes for swimming and bathing. The new park offers the elephants a lot more opportunities for moving around in different ways, and enables them to live together People who know animals will protect them naturally as a family group.
More space for the elephants, more proximity for visitors. The new Kaeng Krachan Elephant Park marks a further milestone at Zoo Zurich.
While the elephants move around more freely, maintain social contacts and even go swimming, the public will have the chance to get closer to the animals than ever before. Visitors will be able to observe the mighty animals reacting socially with one another and look on as the elephants eat at various different food points in their landscaped new compound. The elephants can even be seen swimming from a special underwater viewpoint.
