August 12 is World Elephant Day at the Oregon Zoo!

Head to the Oregon Zoo on Sunday, August 12, and help the zoo celebrate World Elephant Day, a global event designed to raise awareness about the need to support and protect these endangered animals.

Featuring elephant ears (the wearable kind) and elephant ears (the edible kind), the day’s festivities will also include hourly keeper talks and an elephant family pool party. Activities around the habitat will share information about zoo elephants, the threats their wild counterparts face and how visitors can help protect them.

It’s difficult to spend time with the six Asian elephants who live in Elephant Lands (the award-winning, bond-funded habitat that opened in 2015) at the Oregon Zoo and not feel inspired to take action on behalf of elephants in range countries.

Since Packy’s birth in 1962, the Oregon Zoo elephant herd has inspired millions of visitors to appreciate and care for wildlife. This is a great day to learn more about these wonderful zoo residents, learn about what they eat and how they play.

World Elephant Day activities will take place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and the event is free with zoo admission.

Parking costs $2/hour or $8/day and lots tend to fill up quickly in the summer, so the zoo encourages visitors to take public transport: Take MAX Light Rail to the Washington Park stop or a Trimet bus. Call 503-238-RIDE (7433) or visit trimet.org for fare and route information. Visitors who ride MAX light rail or a TriMet bus to the zoo will receive $1.50 off admission with proof of ridership.
