The winning suggestion will get to meet the calf
Starting Monday, September 16th, the Zoo will be soliciting names from the public in a naming contest.
Members of the public are encouraged to submit suggested names via the Zoo’s website from September 16 – 29 (midnight deadline); official contest rules and voting are located at Louisville Zoo. Suggestions will only be accepted online. Three names will be chosen as finalists by the elephant zoo keepers and the public will be invited to vote on their favorite of the three names between October 7 – 20. Guests visiting the Zoo can vote by dropping coins or bills into a naming kiosk located on the Zoo’s front plaza. Voting will also be available online by way of donations made to support a favorite name (credit cards only). All proceeds from the naming contest will support the Zoo’s mission to Better the Bond Between People and Our Planet by providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for visitors, and leadership in conservation education and action.
The winning name and person who submitted that name will be announced the week of October 21. The person who submitted the winning name will receive a prize basket and a behind-the-scenes tour (for 5 guests) to meet the elephant calf and Mikki.
