The Zoo is buzzing about our TWO African elephant calves, Mavi, and her big sister, Mpumi. The Zoo is proud to be a leader in African elephant conservation, education and science, and invites the public to celebrate and support elephants by visiting them year round. Share the care at the Zoo by purchasing a baby elephant adoption package. Your symbolic adoption will help to provide expert care and enrichment for the Zoo’s elephant herd for one year. These packages make great gifts for all occasions!
