22 Months in the Making, Elephant Safari Park & Lodge Welcome its 4th New-Born Baby Elephant


(3/28/2013)

The Elephant Safari Park & Lodge in Taro, Bali is a romantic get-away – for both honeymooning couples staying in their unique jungle bungalows and also for the 31 Sumatran elephants who make the Park their home.

Last week the Elephant Safari Park welcomed a new baby elephant to its herd of 27 rescued Sumatra elephants and 3 other babies born at the park in 2009. This now brings the total number of Sumatran elephants at the world famous park to 31.

The proud mom, 28 year-old Yanti, reportedly had an easy and trouble-free birth with no need from assistance from Park staff and a veterinarian standing by “just in case.” Born at 5.50 am as a new dawn was breaking, a number of guests staying at the Elephant Safari Park Lodge were fortunate to be on hand to witness the birth.

Appropriately, the baby elephant was named Fajar, the Indonesian term for “dawn.”

Doctors were pleased with Fajar’s quick birth that they said was an easy and simple affair for the first-time mother, who reportedly greeted the baby emergence with a loud cry. Within one hour, baby Fajar was on her feet after a 22-month gestation period.

The Park’s managing director Nigel Mason boasted that this latest birth of a baby elephant at his park proved, once again, that the considerable fuss that accompanies elephant births at western zoos is not necessary and that captive elephants giving birth should be left “to take care of things without a cast of thousands fussing around them and getting in the way of what comes naturally in nature. “

Said Mason: “We are here to watch and enjoy natures work and should only be on standby in case a problem occurs. Here at the Elephant Safari Park we let nature take its course with no artificial insemination and no bureaucratic circus involved.”

Bali visitors can now see nature’s handiwork by visiting Yanti and Fajar at the Elephant Safari Park & Lodge.
