Ode to Es

4 July 2013

We are very sad to have to report that Estrella 49, our eldest resident African Elephant had to be put to sleep this morning.

She will be sadly missed

Estrella, or Es as she was known, arrived here in 1997 at the age of 33 from a Spanish Zoo. She had tremendous character and was much loved by staff and visitors. She will be greatly missed.
