New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
Join us for an evening devoted to saving our wild elephants with one of the world’s foremost authorities on the African elephant, Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton.
Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton’s groundbreaking study of elephant behavior in Tanzania in the 1960′s paved the way for elephant research and conservation today. Intrigued by their intelligence, elephant protection became Iain’s passion. In chronicling the sharp decline of elephant populations in the 1980′s, he was the first to alert the world to the poaching crisis and helped bring about the world ivory trade ban.
Iain founded Save the Elephants in 1993, involving local people in both conservation efforts and research. As Director of Save the Elephants, Iain is pioneering the development of live tracking technology to monitor and interpret elephant movements.
For his work, Dr. Hamilton was named the recipient of the Indianapolis Prize, one of the world’s leading awards for animal conservation, in recognition for his lifetime achievements. Today, Iain continues to work tirelessly on behalf of elephant populations under threat from poaching for their ivory, a trade which has reached crisis proportions.Please join us as we partner with Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton and Save the Elephants on this critical issue, one where we can all make a difference in the lives of wildlife.
