    Thank you for these information, but you forgot the birth in Cologne from that year, a female calf called JAMILI.

    You need to add a calf born in Kobenhavn and the pair still at Dvur Kralove.

    Some corrections for germany:

    Berlin has exchanged the bull with Lissabon. So Steve is now in Portugal, Berlin got the male"Zuri" to mate with"Bashira".

    The female"Abeni" from Leipzig was send to Beekse Bergen.

    The female"Lindi"from Frankfurt was send to Antwerp.

    Köln has another female",Hakima"from Antwerp. She is the mother of"Jamili".

    Ther is one more female at Stuttgart,"Lumara", born there in 2015.

    Wuppertal has one more female,"Elani", born oct. 2016.

    This make 6.12 for germany.

    For Basle, there is one more male,"Nuru", born a few weeks ago.

    Dvur has only a male,"Ewango", born there Sep 21,2008. His sister"Ebony"was send to Basle in 2015.
    No details about the okapai calf at Kopenhagen, but it is doing well.

    What are the possibilities that other countries, like Spain, Italy, Austria, Hungary or even Croatia, Greece and Turkey, will get their first okapi(s)? Once I read that okapis will be only sent to institutions having previous experience with the species in the EAZA region. Closest okapi from my living town would be those in Basel, Dvur Kralove or Leipzig & Berlin :)

    I would FIRST like to have Dvur reinstated as a breeding facility, of all things.

    I used this source to originally find out most of the info here :) it's just not up to date so I thought I'd make a thread here to get a fully up to date list.

    Only just caught this, thanks for the updates! Not sure who Dumela is but when we visited Marwell end of last year it was just the trio Shomari, Jabari and Daphne.
