Health concerns for Australia Zoo’s oldest elephant were the reason why Auckland Zoo had to cancel Burma the elephant’s move overseas, Stuff reports. “After discussions with The Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, we have made the incredibly tough decision to cancel the transfer of Burma to Australia Zoo,” an Australia Zoo spokesperson said. Auckland Zoo originally announced it had to send away both its elephants in 2020, to ensure they could live with a herd.
