Does anyone know what the plan is with the Twycross Zoo elephants. Twycross born female Karishma at 8 was sent out in August 2006 to Whipsnade. However, both the breeding age females Tonzi and Minbu have been without a partner since 1996/1997 and female Noor Jahan has now also reached adulthood at 12. It seems such a waste that female elephants in the best possible age have no access to a proven bull of their own. Are elephants in the future collection plan for Twycross and do they intend provide breeding space for a bull?
