Kashin Image from Auckland Zoo Website

This week marked a sad week for the Auckland Zoo. Kashin, 1 of the 2 asian elephants at the Zoo, had been suffering from a range of health problems for some time and zoo keepers had to make the hard decision to put her to sleep. Kashin was a much loved icon of the Auckland Zoo and had been at the Zoo since 1972.

This weekend will mark a memorial service for Kashin. You can head along to the Auckland Zoo on Sunday 30th August from 9.30am til 5pm. There will be lots going on for the day! The Zoo is expecting huge crowds and asks for you all to very patient with the crowds as everyone is there to celebrate the life of Kashin.

AC is going on to the Auckland Zoo on Saturday and is going to represent Mega 25 to drop off the cards and messages we have made for Kashin. Thanks AC!
