The adult elephants in our herd came from Swaziland in 2003, where they were scheduled to be killed due to overpopulation. Upon their arrival, we also launched a reproductive program to benefit the demographics and genetic structure of African elephants in N. America. We’re proud to say we’ve had many additions since then. Much love for our herd and the wild species still roaming the earth. #GoGrey#WorldElephantDay
