Comments / pictures

1994: With the death of the fifty-four-year-old elephant Nely, technicians at the Brasília zoo began to make contacts to obtain another specimen. Veterinarian Lúcia Magalhães says that there are currently no captive elephants in the country that can be donated.
In Belo Horizonte, two calves were born in captivity, but in other states, zoos have only one male and one female.

Today, Lúcia is heading to South Africa, where the meeting of directors of zoos in Latin America is taking place. Participants will visit reserves and parks and the veterinarian will take the opportunity to negotiate a couple of elephants for the city"
