Baby boy elephant named at Chester Zoo

A new baby boy elephant has been born at Chester Zoo, shortly before midnight on Sunday.

 Chester Zoo’s new baby elephant calf, has been named Nayan meaning eye in Hindi.

The male calf, which was born close to midnight on Sunday 18th July, has been exploring his new home while staying close to his mother, Sithami. 

The name was chosen by both the Zoo’s elephant keepers and the staff from the Assam Haathi Project, the conservation project which mitigates human elephant conflict in North East India.
