Playful elephants


This cheerful picture shows (part of) the biggest herd of African elephants in the UK, enjoying their new play sand. We delivered 40 tonnes of Sevenoaks sand FOC to Howletts near Canterbury. It's a fun way to assist wildlife conservation with something we can easily do.

The sand is donated via the Aspinall Foundation, the well known animal conservation charity, working in conjunction with Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks in Kent. At Howletts, they have 13 African elephants, which occupy a grass paddock, one with mud, one concrete floored - and one with sand, which we have the pleasure of refilling from time to time.

Full details of the sand we are supplying can be found here. The picture was kindly supplied by Bryony Hatcher at the Aspinall Foundation.
