The Practice for the Elephants Contest Results Are In!

To all of my young students who participated in the contest:

Congratulations!

Because of all of your hard work practicing the piano, together you raised not only enough to continue to care for our two elephants Barsilinga and Chemi Chemi, and to foster a new elephant in place of Lominyek, who is now grown up and released into the wilds of the park, but you also raised enough for a FOURTH new baby elephant to foster!!
I am very happy and very proud of you all, you have made a very important and meaningful contribution to the survival of African elephants. 🙂 🙂 🙂
