The LA Zoo holds a large, 6.56 acre, habitat for their Elephants of Asia exhibit. This vast space has bathing pools and a high-tech barn for elephants of all sizes. However, it is important to learn about the troubles the elephant can face in the wild. They face extinction. In contrast, the zoo offers guests opportunities, like this event, to contribute to conservation programs.
