Elephants are one of the most iconic African animals. They're also the biggest. Learn about elephants at the Milwaukee County Zoo on Elephant Appreciation Day. With activities designed to educate and spread awareness, you'll learn what the Zoo does to support conservation efforts and ways you can help.
Ask zookeepers about the daily lives of the Zoo's African elephants, Ruth and Brittany. Touch elephant artifacts such as a real tusk and tail. You can even buy paintings created by Ruth and Brittany. Proceeds go to the International Elephant Foundation.
