The Norman Foster-designed elephant house at the city zoo

Elephants in Copenhagen

2009-12-06 - Copenhagen, Denmark

you can appreciate it at the Norman Foster-designed elephant house, where I arrive after a 20-minute bus ride and a 10-minute stroll past wolves and polar bears.
The building undulates with the terrain and is the colour of Africa, topped off with two curved glass cupolas that make me think of the Eden Project. It smells strongly of - what else? - elephant. It is overlooked by the old Elefanthus, home to the zoos pachyderms between 1914 and 2008, which surmounts a neighbouring hill like a ...

Evaristtis labels show pink-coloured weapons whose combustible parts have been ´castrated and rendered harmless, then replaced with elephant trunks symbolising ´peace and harmony. The mascot for the project is a pink elephant. And conveniently enough, the elephant has also been Carlsbergs leading symbol since 1901, when the famous granite elephants were built on the brewerys Valby site.

Elephants during the gardening experiment

Elephants go gardening in Denmark

2008-09-21 - copenhagen, Denmark

This might seem odd, but elephants are being used to help with the gardening at a nature reserve in Denmark. Apparently theyre great at pulling out unwanted trees and bushes, without leaving big holes. Its part of an experiment to see if the animals could work as a more environmentally-friendly alternative to machinery like tractors and diggers. If its a success, elephants will be called in help to maintain the Danish countryside for three months each year.

Holding on tight to the hand of his grandfather Prince Henrik and with an elephant soft toy clutched in the other, little Christian of Denmark headed off to Copenhagen Zoo on Tuesday to help inaugurate its new elephant house. Once there, the two-year-old son of Crown Prince Frederik and his Australia-born wife Mary stuck close to his animal-loving grandpa - Henrik is honorary president of the Danish Dachshund Club - as they made their way to two glass-domed enclosures which house the pachyderms.

800,000 year old mammoth DNA, modern elephant DNA or PCR artefact?

2007-02-22 - Copenhagen, Denmark

Poulakakis and colleagues (Poulakakis et al. 2006: Biol. Lett. 2, 451-454), report the recovery of authentic mammoth DNA from an 800,000-year-old fragment of bone excavated on the island of Crete. In light of results from other ancient DNA studies that indicate how DNA survival is unlikely in samples, which are recovered from warm environments and are relatively old (e.g. more than 100,000 years), these findings come as a great surprise.
