ElephantVoices.org is back online – we hope you will visit!

Dusting elephants. Copyright: ElephantVoices In todays newsletter, sent out to ElephantVoices friends and contacts around the world, we gave an introduction to the second generation ElephantVoices.org as well as touching on some of the issues that have occupied us over the last few months. Supported by programmers at Verviant.com in Nairobi, we have built a new cyber home. Our main purpose has been to develop an efficient, flexible and creative platform for the online sharing of information about elephants – their behavior, communication and interests.

We apologise for not being able to launch the news section and the Video Database at this stage. And you may find that some things don’t function as they should – please let us know! Our overall goal is to continue to expand and improve the site in the years to come.

We invite you to take a tour on ElephantVoices!

Best wishes, Petter and Joyce

    Sometimes when I can’t sleep, I’ll take a look at the various live webcams of animals around the globe! I live in the states and found a live elephant webcam at a zoo in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
    At first, I was transfixed and in awe of these giant beauties, but as always, saddened, whenever I see animals in captivity (especially for profit!!). After a few moments of watching, I noticed these elephants, in particular a large female (we’ll call her “A”) and a medium-sized female or male, ( we’ll call him/her, “B”) began to repeat a particular behavior together; swaying in place.
    Now I’m not an animal expert, just an animal lover, and it didn’t take long to figure out that they must do this out of sheer boredom? And, if you see the small size of their pen, you can almost hear them thinking to themselves that they are totally bored and must be going out of their minds!!
    Whenever “A” starts to sway, and she does it near a gate almost all the time, “B” will then walk opposite her and do the same! It is very sad. You’ll notice that even “B” will do this when he/she is eating and not even looking at “A”!!
    In the left hand lower corner, you’ll see what I believe is a large male with tusks, pacing back and forth to the closed gate as well!!
    Why do these beautiful animals have to be penned up and put on display like this?! This is why I do NOT go to Zoo’s and NEVER the circus.
    Anyhow, just thought you might want to see this.
    Thanks for all you do!

    I can’t seem to get on the website. I wanted to show an elephant friend the database you have created. She’s going to help me set up one for circus elephants. Well she’s one of the people helping me.
