Can you name Chehaw's new Emus?

News Release from Chehaw  

(Albany, Ga.)- Two baby emus made their debut into the world at Chehaw Wild Animal Park on March 1, 2011. After some special care and time with their mother, the emus are now available for public viewing. There is just one problem, the emus need names!

Chehaw is opening up the naming process to the public and will be taking suggestions for names from now until June 1st.

Guests can submit their names via standard mail to Tonya Hart, 105 Chehaw Park Rd., Albany, GA, 31707 or email

The emus are native of Australia, so Chehaw asks that the names have an Australian flare.

Once the names are selected, the winners will receive a behind the scenes tour to meet the baby emus and have lunch with Chehaw's Zoo Director, Kevin Hils.
