Emily is a 53 year old Asian Elephant. She resides at the Buttonwood Park Zoo in New Bedford, MA. She is one of two Asian Elephants at the Zoo. She and her companion, Ruth is a little older than Emily. At 58, she is the third oldest Asian Elephant in the US.
This pair of pachyderms will be the last to reside at Buttonwood. The zoo announced that after Emily and Ruth end their run, there will be no more elephants at this zoo.
Don’t worry. Rumor has it Rhinos are next.
What is this, some kind of series?
Yes, it is! Throughout 2017 I’m attempting to take a new image every day and post it to this blog. Ambitious, I know. Success is not guaranteed, but I’ll give it my all. You can see all of the images below. Just click on a thumbnail and flip through them.
