Blackpool Zoo’s herd of Asian elephants is now almost complete following the safe arrival of two females from Twycross Zoo. Noorjahan and her four-year-old calf, Esha have arrived at our new multi-million pound Project Elephant Base Camp at Blackpool Zoo following months of 'behind the scenes' work with specialists from Twycross Zoo and experts from the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP).
Our keepers at Blackpool Zoo have got another feather in their collective caps after gaining official recognition from the Avicultural Society for their outstanding achievements in breeding Eastern white pelicans.
