Short, but important article from Tamil Nadu, India: reunion with mother is the priority, not a future spent in the zoo.
Notice on stranded elephant calves
The petitioner said in the case of elephants and their calves, the action now being taken by the authorities was sending the stranded/separated elephant calves in the forests to the State zoo, rather than ensuring their reunion with their mothers. This would cause further distress to the calves.
"They need to move and have stimulation. They need to be browsing, foraging, socialising. They need to have reason for movement." Pat Derby, PAWS, on elephants' needs.
