On the Path to Conservation
This year’s ZooFari highlights Asian elephant conservation. Unless we act now, elephants in Asia could soon be extinct. Human-elephant conflict and habitat loss have decreased wild populations by 70 percent. To protect the future of Asian elephants, the National Zoo has launched Elephant Trails: A Campaign to Save Asian Elephants. Through this comprehensive breeding, education, and research program, Zoo scientists will better care for elephants in zoos and help save them in the wild. A key component of Elephant Trails is a new home for elephants at the Zoo.Elephant Affair ZooFari Tickets
