Woodland Park Zoo's dedication to the care of its elephants, and the protection of wild elephants, is key to our mission. We support vital conservation projects in Africa and Asia that protect elephants and their habitat, reducing human⁄elephant conflict and incorporating the talents of the people who live in their midst.
Woodland Park Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums, a network of 210 of the best zoos and aquariums in North America, all committed to animal welfare and conservation.
