Phu Noy (2)
Born 2011 in Hongsa district
Noy Number 3 was born in Hongsa district from mother Mae Ven. At 2 months old, he and his mother travelled down from Hongsa district to Sayaboury district and are now residing at the Elephant Conservation Center. The mother and baby are kept in a separate batch of forest from other cows and babies so that there are no conflicts between the mothers. All three babies and their mothers do meet once a day at bath time and they will slowly spend more and more time together in order to socialize. Noy 3 is still very young as we are writing these lines (January 2012). When both the mother and baby are used to the other residing elephants, we will bring them together.
