Description

Hands-on discovery stations will educate guests about our pachyderms' natural history and diet. Special stations will also focus on the status of these animals in the wild and how our actions can make a difference. Visitors get the chance to create their own enrichment items, which will be used as food discovery items in the elephant exhibit. There will be games, keeper talks and more.

 

Asian elephants are very rare and your actions matter when it comes to protecting them and their habitats. Find out what zoos are doing to help Asian elephants and how you can help too!
