3rd Elephant On The Way At Henry Doorly Zoo

It’s … another baby elephant!

Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo announced Wednesday that a third elephant is pregnant.

Lolly, who is about 10 years old, is due in about one year.

“Having two (elephant calves) and then now a third one due next year is going to be really important,” Dennis Pate, president and CEO of Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, said. “When we made the case to bring these elephants in part of the case was to improve sustainability. And that was seven or eight years ago. And here we are today saying we’re living up to that promise that we’re going to be major player and contributing to sustainability of elephants and so that your grandkids and your great grandkids will still be able to see an elephant like you can see here up close and learn about elephants importantly.”

The zoo welcomed two elephants, Sonny and Eugenia, in January.

Checkout Eugenia – she is so TINY!!!
