Disney’s Animal Kingdom has announced a special holiday season gift, the joyous arrival of baby elephant Corra. The birth represents the first baby elephant born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom since 2016, bringing excitement and attention to the park’s wildlife conservation efforts.
The newborn is an African elephant calf, a species known for its majestic presence and social nature. The mother, Nadirah, became pregnant in early 2022 through natural breeding and has been under the dedicated care of Disney’s animal care team throughout her 22-month pregnancy. This extensive period of care highlights the commitment of Disney’s team to the health and well-being of their animals.
Weighing in at 218 pounds, the baby elephant is a significant addition to the elephant family at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The birth of Corra not only adds to the park’s allure but also contributes to the conservation and understanding of African elephants, which are a crucial part of our global wildlife heritage.
Visitors to Disney’s Animal Kingdom can look forward to witnessing the growth and development of this new member of the park, as Corra represents a symbol of hope and a testament to the ongoing efforts in wildlife conservation and care at Disney’s facilities.
