African Elephant Conservation & Research
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo supports the conservation of animals in the wild as well as ensures the health and well-being of the animals in our care. It is the Zoo's job to participate in elephant conservation by supporting projects that address the multiple and complex issues that are key to their long-term survival in the wild. It is also the Zoo's job to make the lives of Zoo elephants as close to the "wild" as possible within the limitations of space, diet and other factors.
The Zoo participates in elephant conservation through projects that have effect in places where wild elephants live. Scientists at the Zoo conduct elephant research projects to increase our knowledge and improve management of African elephants.
