Elephant Exhibit
Albuquerque Biological Park, New Mexico

Elephant Exhibit has a cow-barn with four large stalls and a separate bull-barn to house two bulls. There are both on-exhibit and off-exhibit yards for elephants. Special features include raised platform viewing for the public. The exhibit has two pools for elephants, one of which is deep enough for the animals to swim. There are three separate enclosures all with many animal enrichment activies to help eliminate stereotypic behavior.

This exhibit was designed by VHGA Architect Ray Darnell while working for the City of Albuquerque.
