Original post SL 24 Dec 2010:

We visited this zoo earlier this month. I visited both Maude & Mary a few years ago and was appalled by what I saw. I have seen one zoo worse than this one for elephants and that's the Greenville zoo.

There were some changes on this visit, but not for the animals. A large Zip-Line park was constructed at the front of the zoo and that is where most of the people were. Most of the animals are in wire cages with the exception of the cheetahs.

Maude ia alone now. Her companion Mary passed away several months ago. There have no enhancements made to the elephant enclosure. The keepers use free contact. They put on a "keeper talk" and there is an afternoon elephant encounter. For an additional fee, people can feed Maude and touch her.

Central Florida Zoo says goodbye to 'Maude'

The Central Florida & Botanical Gardens announces it will be transferring Maude, the Asian elephant to Zoo Miami within the next month. Maude will share a home at Zoo Miami with two other Asian elephants and will become part of this elephant herd. "We have an obligation to all of our animals, and especially to Maude, to select what is in her best interest," says Joe Montisano, CEO of Zoo. "After an extensive process and analysis of our options, we are confident this is best for her at this time."

A thirty-year resident of the Central Florida Zoo is getting a special send-off party Sunday.

Maude, the Asian elephant is being transferred to Zoo Miami. There she will share a home with two other Asian elephants and will become part of this elephant herd.

Maude came to the Central Florida Zoo in 1983 from Busch Gardens in Tampa.

The send-off includes a bounce house, elephant arts and crafts, a big banner for all Maude's friends to sign, elephant conservation booth and an elephant-size cake for Maude to enjoy. One for her guests as well.

For more information on the send-off or the Central Florida Zoo visit: www.centralfloridazoo.org.

Central Florida Zoo's Elephant Adjusting Well to Her New Herd at Miami Zoo

Maude, the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens’ (Zoo) Asian elephant, recently moved to Zoo Miami and is adjusting well to her new elephant herd. She has joined two other Asian elephants, Nellie and Dahlip.

Zoo hoofstock keepers, Bernie Bartosch and Dani Lent, remained in Miami for several days after Maude’s arrival to assist her with adjustments to her new environment. Maude has settled in quickly and was observed exploring her new home. Recent reports from the Zoo Miami keepers indicated the elephants are doing well, sharing food and exploring their exhibit together.
