    Well there are a number of topics dedicated to other species, so why not make one for one of Europe's largest animals?

    I'll start off the topic with some of the current items of interest.

    Currently there are ten confirmed pregnant cows:

    Aye Chan May at Pairi Daiza due end 2018 (sire Po Chin)
    Donna at Whipsnade due? (sire Rajah)
    Farina at Pairi Daiza due 2019 (sire most likely Po Chin, small possibility Chamundi)
    Hoa at Leipzig due early 2019 (sire most likely Naing Thein, small possibility Voi Nam)
    Lai Sinh at Hagenbecks due end 2018 (sire Gajendra)
    Ma Ya Yee at Emmen due mid 2018 (sire Mekong)
    Shila at Hagenbecks due mid 2018 (sire Gajendra)
    Thia Hi Way at Chester due 2019 (sire Aung Bo)

    There have been a number of successful births in the past year, the population is growing at a tremendous rate, with many second and third generation births, and even a smattering of fourth generation animals!

    (in order from end of March 2017 to April of 2018)

    bull born to Sang Raja and Malar at Colonge(second gen)
    cow to Upali and Berhnadine at Dublin (third gen)
    cow to Valentino and Cynthia at Madrid (second gen)
    cow to Maurice and Indra at Amersfoort (third gen)
    cow to Nikolai and Sayang at Hannover (second gen)
    bull to Chieng Mai and Kungrao at Copenhagen (first gen)
    bull to Upali and Yasmin at Dublin (third gen)
    bull to Sang Raja and Tong Koon at Colonge (second gen)
    bull to Pamir and Pepita at Moscow (first gen)
    bull to Ankhor and Douanita at Osnabrck (first gen)
    bull to Calvin and Vishesh at Ostrava (third gen)
    bull to Po Chin and Hhaing Hnin Hnin at Pairi Daiza (third gen)
    bull to Maurice and Kina at Amersfoort (fourth gen)
    bull to Assam and Angele at Budapest (third gen)
    cow to Chang and May Tagu at Plankendael (third gen)
    cow to Chang and Kai Mook at Plankendael (third gen)
    bull to Upali and Anak at Dublin (fourth gen)
    cow to Sibu and Htoo Yin Aye at Dierenrijkt (third gen)
    bull to Mekong and Mingalar Oo at Emmen (second gen)
    bull to Chang and Khaing Phyo Phyo at Plankendael (second gen)

    That is a whopping 20 living calves born in a years time! Sadly, it is decidedly more bull shifted.

    There were also three calves that died shortly after birth, these were:

    bull to Sang Raja and Kreeblamduan (second gen)
    cow to Gajendra and Salvana (second gen)
    unknown to Tonsak and Bua (first gen) (I believe this one was stillborn)

    There are a number of facilities that have had bulls transferred within the past 1-3 years, and some facilities due for a new breeding bull, and yet more with females that, while not confirmed, are more than likely due to calf this year following past history, and these combined are sure to make sure for a very interesting 2018 season for asian elephants in Europe!

    The male calf born to Chang and Khaing Phyo Phyo on April 11th at Plankendael has been named Tarzen. This is the 10th surviving calf for father Chang and fifth surviving calf for mother Phyo Phyo, and their second (and last) calf together.

    A male calf has been born to mother Shila and father Gajendra at Hagenbecks Tierpark on May 5th. This is the fourth living calf for Gajendra and the first for Shila. It is also the second, second generation birth at the zoo, as Shila was also born at the zoo in 2007.

    This is also the fifth European asian elephant birth for 2018, and its only just now May!

    With 234 (102.132) Asian elephants considered potential breeding candidates, Europe has succeeded in developing a sustainable population of Asian elephants. However, many elephants in Europe can trace their lineage back to either Chieng Mai, Motek, Radza, Maxi, Ramon, Hussein, Naing Thein, Ankhor, Calvin, or Nikolai so breeding must be well coordinated to prevent inbreeding.

    0.1 Thi Hi Way gave birth to a male calf on May 17, 2018 at the Chester Zoo.
    It’s a boy! Chester Zoo celebrates ‘astonishing’ birth of rare elephant calf | Chester Zoo

    This is Thi Hi Way’s fourth viable calf as well as Aung Bo’s fourth viable calf but only their second together.

    Even though I wish the calf was female rather than male, I’m elated that Thi Hi Way was able to have a successful outcome, after initially believing that the pregnancy had failed, and produce another calf.

    The male calf born to 1.0 Upali and 0.1 Anak on February 10, 2018 at the Dublin Zoo has been named Sanjay.

    1.0 Shanti and 1.0 Shahrukh were transferred from the Osnabrück Zoo while 1.0 Taru was transferred from the Hannover Zoo to the Szeged Zoo on May 16, 2018.

    Three year old female Qiyo has unfortunetly passed away suddenly at Plankendael Zoo. While the cause of death is currently unknown, it is strongly suspected to be the herpes virus.

    Qiyo was out of Chang and Khaing Phyo Phyo, and while she was not a particularly genetically valuable animal, the loss of a young cow is a sad occurance for the European population.

    Thirty six year old 0.1 Khaing Phyo Phyo passed away on June 4, 2018 at the Planckendael Zoo due to renal failure and weight loss.

    With the passing of Qiyo and Khaing Phyo Phyo, this has been a very sad and unfortunate time for the Planckendael Zoo elephant herd.

    And in even more worse news, young elephant bull Kanja has passed away at Hagenbecks Tierpark on June 6th 2018.

    Tierpark Hagenbeck in Hamburg trauert um Elefantenjungen - WELT

    While the loss of a bull is not as bad as the loss of cows Phyo Phyo and Qiyo, Kanja was relatively genetically valuable bull, being out of wild caught bull Gajendra who has few offspring and captive bred female Kandy. This is also the second calf lost for Hagenbeck's in a rather short period of time, leaving them with only two of four surviving calves from their most recent string of births.

    Lots of news both good and bad in the population lately.

    Another tragic loss for Hamburg, three year old female Anjuli (Gajendra x Yashoda) has passed away from EEHV on June 13th. She was a hard hit for the European population, being both a young female and genetically valuable, to boot! This leaves them at a mere one for four for recent births.

    In a more positive development, 20 year old bull Maxim (Ramon x Yu Yu Yin) has been transferred from Parc le Pal in France to the Ostrava Zoo in the Czech Republic. Here hopefully he will breed with cows Vishesh (Luka x Jothi) and Rashmi (Calvin x Jothi).

    A new holder has recently taken on animals, Szeged Zoo in Hungary. They have received 10 year old bulls Sharhukh (Hussein x Yashoda) and Shanti (Calvin x Khaing Hnin Hnin) from Osnabrück, and 4.5 year old Taru (Nikolai x Manari) from Hannover.

    Tying into the above news, Nikolai (Tusko x Kitty), Hannover's prolific breeding bull, will soon be transferred to the Artis Royal Zoo for breeding with cows Thong Tai and Yindee (Alexander x Thong Tai). This will be his third trip to the zoo, and hopefully his stay will be for a longer period of time than his past two visits as Artis works towards to completion of a bull setup for their elephant exhibit.

    0.1 Ma Yay Yee gave birth to male calf named Manoa on June 26, 2018 at Wildlands Adventure Zoo.
    Olifantenjong | WILDLANDS

    This is the third calf for Ma Yay Yee and the fifth calf for Mekong but only their first calf together.

    I can't believe Emmen produced yet another male calf. It makes me wonder if Emmen will ever produce another female calf or if the breeding females are some how only able to produce male calves?

    Regardless, congratulations to Wildlands Adventure Zoo for another successful birth of an elephant calf.

    0.1 Noorjahan and 0.1 Esha were transferred from the Twycross Zoo to the Blackpool Zoo on August 30, 2018.
    Elephants reunited at Blackpool Zoo | Blackpool Zoo News

    With the transfer of Noorjahan and Esha, the Twycross Zoo herd has been successfully reunited at the Blackpool Zoo. In addition, the breeding females, Tara and Noorjahan, are now together which will enable the Blackpool Zoo to acquire a breeding bull for them. Eventually, Esha will also participate in the Blackpool Zoo's Asian elephant breeding program once she's reached sexual maturity.

    Twenty year old 0.1 Sithami passed away on September 7, 2018 at the Chester Zoo (Chester, England) after collapsing. The cause of death is unknown. This is a significant loss to the European Asian elephant population as Sithami was reproductively viable and a significant member of Thi Hi Way's matriarchal herd.
