Want Another Chance to Name a Zoo Animal?
I’ve blogged about other zoo animal naming contests including a recent baby gorilla naming contest in Rwanda.
This is the first zoo animal naming contest I am aware of that specifies criteria for baby elephant name candidates.
Here is what the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, MO. expects from the contest entries:
- Name should have links to Asia or India.
- Name should be one or two syllables so it’s easy to get the elephants attention.
- Name submissions must also include it’s meaning or the reason for the name.
Entries can be submitted until August 26th at dickersonparkzoo.org.
A grand prize will be offered, but was not specified.
Good luck with your baby elephant name submissions.
