Watch the ELEPHANTS, BLACK RHINO, VULTURES, OKAPI’S and INDIAN RHINO live via these webcams. Note: the light you see in the evening is infrared light and is not visible in the accommodation (eg. a remote control also works with infrared light).
On May 5th 2021, an Asian elephant was born, on Liberation Day. It is the fifteenth healthy elephant born in Rotterdam. For the twenty-year-old mother Bangka this is her third young. The elephant family at Blijdorp has a tight social structure. Her mother Irma has supported Bangka during her previous births (Sunay & Faya).
PLEASE NOTE: The indoor cam is turned off between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm. The elephants stay outside from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
The white light you see at night is infrared light, that doesn’t affect the animals. With this infrared light the keepers can keep a close eye on the elephants.
WEBCAMS IN NURSERY BLACK RHINO
November 8th, 2020, black rhino Naima gave birth to a son. On his fathers (Vungu) birthday. It is the third black rhino born in a Dutch zoo (all in Rotterdam Zoo). On November 18th, the little black rhino went outside for the first time. He will only be outside once in a while. There is no fixed time and it is weather-dependent. If he is not outside, you can see him on these webcams in the nursery. Beware: the cams are addictive 😉
Just click … if you dare 😉
When the weather is fine, the lions can be in their outdoor area.
