Elephants Keep Cool In The Sun

Elephants at Whipsnade Zoo are getting a spruce up ahead of their starring role in Elephantastic

Kaylee, Lucha and little Donna, just nine months, will show members of the public how they can lift their feet for keepers to check and care for them on a daily basis

The demonstration will culminate with the introduction of George, the newest calf whose name has just been announced. Six-week-old George, or Mr George Ketchum to give him his full title, was named by Londoner Avril Lee who bid for the rights to name him on an eBay auction by bidding £1,850. In fact the company generously put up their donation to £2,500.

A delighted Avril, partner and deputy CEO of Ketchum Pleon London said: “It's not every day that you 'buy' an elephant name, but the opportunity to name such a fantastic animal after our founder George Ketchum, PR pioneer, was too good to miss.  At Ketchum Pleon PR we're excited by the work we do and the difference we can make, helping Asian elephants in their fight to survive in a changing world is something we all believe in. He's a elephant we'll never forget.”
