Elephant Behind the Scenes
Melbourne Zoo is offering the opportunity to hang out with our herd of Asian Elephants. Enter the elephant paddock and help the keepers use food for a mammoth game of hide-and-seek. Visitors will be able to spend some time with the elephants’ keeper, grab front row seats and watch the herd romp in the paddock.
Meeting the elephants at Melbourne Zoo is an important way to contribute to fighting species extinction and to learn about the Zoo’s conservation programs.
This encounter takes place at...
- Melbourne Zoo
- Healesville Sanctuary
- Werribee Open Range Zoo
You can help Fight
Together we can improve animal care, reduce threatening processes and save endangered species.
Asian Elephants in the wild have been poached for their tusks and populations have dwindled. Melbourne Zoo has been successful in breeding four calves in recent years. You can help us fight extinction by adopting the Asian Elephant.
