The elephants at Whipsnade Zoo near Dunstable will be packing their trunks this spring to move into a £2million enclosure.
The 'Centre for Elephant Care' will feature a new barn and viewing platform for visitors, all set in 20 acres of grass paddocks.
The new centre includes the following:
- Soft sand flooring for comfort
- Dimming lights to mimic night-time conditions
- Feeding pods to release food regularly during the night
- Six giaan oak trees for scratching posts.
The new centre will also have balcony viewing so visitors can watch the her. It's due to open at Easter.
