Smithsonian—National Zoo, Elephants

The National Zoo’s Elephant Trails exhibit was designed in keeping with the best practices for Asian-elephant management. It includes space for socializing, training and playing while providing the elephant staff safe access to the animals. Altogether, the facility can house eight to 10 adult elephants and their young.

David’s contribution enabled the National Zoo to bring three female Asian elephants to Washington, expanding the Zoo’s existing herd to six.
