Seneca Park Zoo and Monroe County an- n ounced the addition of t wo new African ele- p hants to the zoo on T hursday, as Moki and Chana join the elephant herd that has been only Genny C and Lilac since 1979. Moki (pronounced moe-KEY) and Chana (cha-NAH) are both 33 years old. They were born in Zimbabwe and had been living in the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens in Florida. “One reason the Assoc iation of Zoos and Aquariums recommended that these magnificent animals live at Seneca Park Zoo is because of its first- rate elephant exhibit and excellent African elephant program,” Monroe County Executive Magg ie Brooks, who tweeted about Moki and Chana’s arrival, said in a statement. Genny C and Lilac have entertained zoo guests for decades, but moved into a state-of-the- art facility in 2006 that is n ow called, “A Step Into Africa.” Asplash pool was added in 2008 and additional stalls and other improvements in 2012 will allow for top-notch care and management of multiple elephants. The invest- m ent in the elephant habitat is about $7.5 million. Seneca Park Zoo adds two African elephants JEFF DIVERONICA STAFF WRITER AMELIA BIFANO Moki and Chana come to the Seneca Park Zoo from the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens in F lorida. The Zimbabwe-born elephants, both females, are 33 years old.
