In September 2004 Ilona was relocated from the Hannover Zoo to Heidelberg after the births of Califa and Farina.
In 2009, the Heidelberg Zoo's plans to rebuild their elephant exhibit rescheduled the transfer of their two Asian females Ilona and Jenny from September to Karlsruhe due to workings at the exhibit.

2914.03.31: Due to Artrosis Ilona was on painkilling medicals for many years. The last weeks the dosis had to be increased, and out from welfare grounds, a decision was taken to release her from pain.
