AUGUST IS ASIAN ELEPHANT AWARENESS MONTH

August is Asian Elephant Awareness Month and the Oklahoma City Zoo is collaborating with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and international elephant conservation partners to raise awareness of the plight Asian elephants are facing, and empower the public to help save this endangered species through an engaging social media campaign, #TONSoflove. This unified effort aims to inspire wildlife fans to show their love for Asian elephants by posting photos and messages on social media with #TONSoflove. Participants are encouraged to hold their hands in the shape of a heart in their posts. The OKC Zoo is home to seven Asian elephants and committed to providing opportunities for the community to get involved to ensure the future of this beloved animal. Along with the #TONSoflove campaign, join the OKC Zoo and Bob Moore Subaru for World Elephant Day on Sunday, August 9. Guests can partake in various activities from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to learn more about the Zoo’s Asian elephants and how you can help save their counterparts in the wild. Show your love for Asian elephants with #TONSoflove and remember to tag @okczoo.
