Here at Auckland Zoo we have two special elephants, Burma and Anjalee, and a great team of elephant keepers. On Wednesday 12 August we're uniting with Australasian zoos by going grey and it’d be greYt if you joined us!
How you can help this World Elephant Day:
- Go Grey by dressing in your best grey threads on Wednesday 12...or even the week leading up to World Elephant Day!
- Join our 11.15am elephant keeper talk to see our keepers engaging Anjalee and Burma in positive reinforcement training sessions, bathing and of course, interacting with you guys!
- Further support our conservation efforts for elephants in Sri Lanka and Sumatra with a donation to our Conservation Fund.
As a not-for-profit conservation organisation, the funds we raise go into caring for our animals and to support conservation projects that help wildlife and communities all around the world. Learn more about our two amazing elephants and the organisations we support below.
