El Paso Zoo Fights Ivory Trade

The El Paso Zoo will honor World Elephant Day on August 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a coloring station to help the community become aware of the ongoing ivory crisis in Africa and encourage the community to get involved.

Children will be invited to color pictures of elephants that the Zoo will send to government officials as a show of public support for elephant conservation programs.

Anyone wanting to help can download the elephant coloring page on the Zoo’s website. Coloring pages can be dropped off at the El Paso Zoological Society Office or sent to the Zoo Education Office, 4001 E. Paisano Dr., El Paso, Texas 79905 on or before August 5.
