Be Part of the Herd.

Did you know African elephants eat approximately 2-3% of their body weight per day? Your adoption not only helps provide food, but also provides enrichment which helps our elephants learn new and exciting behaviors! By adopting, you are giving our elephants a trunk full of love!
