My frickin’ dream job. ・・・It’s not uncommon for an orphaned elephant to go through a period of deep grieving after losing its loved ones. During this precarious time, our Keepers step in to fill the void and provide the loving care the calves need to survive. Elephants are highly social animals, and, like human babies, calves enjoy being chatted to and cuddled with — and at all hours. The Keepers spend the night with the Nursery babies, sleeping alongside them on a rotational basis, and it is not uncommon for them to be awoken by a calf demanding more attention!
