As the title says, should Marwell have elephants in its collection, specifically i am thinking of African elephants. Now that the land being used for the African bowl has seen the start of development, i thought a large portion of this area could be used for African elephants, the space is there, and with Marwell having one of the most extensive collections of African mammals in the UK, surely elephants would be an iconic species to bring into the park. I have read through the years that Marwell do not have the funds to home a group of elephants, but with collections like Belfast, Knowsley, Port Lympne and Colchester having similar attendance levels and similar sized collections, surely Marwell could manage it too. The valley would make a spectacular setting for a small herd of elephants, be it a breeding group or not. Opinions anyone?
