After a comprehensive evaluation, Utah’s Hogle Zoo has made the decision to pause its continuous care of elephants that spans more than 100 years. Mom, Christie, 36, and daughter, Zuri, 13, will be transferred with another Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited zoo where opportunities for reproduction can be maximized.
The Conservation Carousel is open at 10 AM daily and will run until zoo closing depending on guest attendance and weather.
