Whirlpools World

THE Terra Natura natural pack at Benidorm is collaborating in an international study to analyse the feeding habits of Asian elephants. They are one of forty European institutions taking part in the project which hopes to find ways of improving the welfare of elephants in captivity. Diet is a vital part of this welfare, with Terra Natura’s own elephants each consuming about 100 kilos of grain as well as fruit and vegetables each day. Most zoos and animal parks have similar dietary regimes and the study will look into any ways these might be altered or improved.
