The Honolulu Zoo is building a new enclosure for their two Indian elephants, Mari and Vaigai. These girls have been living in a 6,000 square foot enclosure, which is way too small for elephants. The new one is five times larger. It even includes a pool where Mari and Vaigai can swim during the heat of the day.
I want to thank the people of Hawai’i for giving their elephants a new home. I would love to see a video clip of them as they are released for the first time. Will they stop to take a dust bath or head straight to the pool?
