World Elephant Day 2021

Today is World Elephant Day!

Elephants are extraordinary animals that need your help. The United States is the second largest consumer of ivory in the world, and poaching for ivory has pushed elephants to the brink of extinction.

Reid Park Zoo is leading the way in protecting wild animals and wild places. Visiting your Zoo means protecting elephants! We are proud partners with Dr. Charles Foley who has been studying and protecting elephants in Tanzania for 30 years and has protected over a million acres of critical elephant migration corridors.

You can take a stand for elephants and be a wildlife hero by refusing to purchase ivory products, learning about the challenges elephants face, and supporting your Zoo. 🐘
