I have a childcare center and for the past 10 years we (children/parents and i) have been adopting an elephant from Riddles Elephant santuary every year.We have had a wonderful learning experience and stories to tell. We love when the news letters come!

Thanks for this site. I used to be one of the elephant keepers for the Erie Zoological and Botanical Gardens in PA. Elephant Kate / Katie (stage name - Shani) passed away in 1995 - year before I left my employment there. Her GI tract just shut down over the period of a week and necropsy was inconclusive. She was either 11 or 12 years old at the time of her death. She was a beautiful elephant and loved very much! Here is a photo of Kate:!/photo.php?pid=6758172&fbid=481859734851&op=1&o=global&view=global&subj=54384542596&id=712569851 I just found out from you site that our other elephant Martika / Tika who I had thought was in Cleveland is now in Columbus. Martika came to the Erie Zoo through FL trainer Alan Campbell (now deceased) and was there concurrent for the last few years of Kate's life. I am so glad to see Martika is with a large herd now in Colombus. Martika had good social skills and she will probably flourish in a large herd. Thanks again!

hi dan, i just read an article about the Jackson Zoo, and they mention an Elephant that they euthanized in 2003. Marrie is her name, or so the article says, But i cant locate her in your data base. You list the other two eles that they have (which i guess they are moving now), but you dont have her listed. Thanks for any info you may have.

hello...nice site. I'm the son of Manfred Schmitt (a grandson of Hugo Schmitt). Very good articles on both Hugo and Roman. Could you list myself and my sister, Debbie, as the kids of Manfred? Thankyou. Please feel free to e-mail me anytime. M.Schmitt
