Happy 6th Birthday to our precious boy – Navaan
Today is the special day, it is the day Navaan was brought into this world to be a wonderful elephant with very special character. Navaan, meaning “Gold” in Cambodian, arrived at Elephant Nature Park on Oct 28th 2012 in the wee morning to a chorus of trumpet song and elephant gossip. It was with great surprise that we welcomed him on that early October morning! Though breeding is not planned or encouraged, nature does take it’s course and pregnancies have occurred in the past. SriPrae and Hope kept their romance a secret.
Navaan is a very lucky elephant who born free at the park. He will never work and will never have his spirit broken. Navaan is confident and demanding. Like his father Hope, he is a clown and likes to be the center of attention. He has collected a following of gran-nannies who are hopelessly devoted to him. He is living and growing with warm love of his family. From a little baby elephant now he is becoming a beautiful young bull.
It’s always a treat to wish happy birthday to someone so sweet. On this wonderful day, we wish you the best that life has to offer! Happy birthday Navaan. We love you so much.
