Here at Auckland Zoo we have two special elephants, Burma and Anjalee, and a great team of elephant keepers. On Monday 12 August we're uniting with Australasian zoos by going grey and it’d be greYt if you joined us!
Prior to the day, we’d love for you to share your elephant memories and the special connections you've made with our elephants over the years on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #GoGreyForWorldElephantDay.
How you can help this World Elephant Day:
- Go Grey by dressing in your best grey threads on Monday 12...or even the week leading up to World Elephant Day!
- Visit our zoo, as a portion of your ticket goes towards our #WildWork here at the zoo and in South East Asia! We have two special elephant keeper talks on Monday - 11am and 2.15pm.
- Further support our conservation efforts with a donation to our Conservation Fund.
As a not-for-profit conservation organisation, every cent that we raise goes back 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.
