Elephant sanctuary to open in Bristol

BUILDING work has begun on a major new 20 acre elephant sanctuary in Bristol.
Elephant Eden is due to open next summer at North Somerset Zoo as one of the largest elephant exhibits in Europe.
Designed to offer welfare improvements to elephants already living in captivity, Elephant Eden could become home to elephants with behavioural issues which are causing them difficulties in their current homes, rescue animals, or elephants from collections with a lack of space.
