The Preserve’s commitment is to do their part to help save elephants from extinction through elephant education, knowledge, and conservation. Currently, The Preserve is home to 5 different elephants – Tai, Dixie, Kitty, Rosie, and Becky. Find out more about them here. Did you know that there are only 35,000 Asian elephants remaining? These great mammals can live to be in their 60’s.


The Preserve is open year-round and offers special elephant experiences during select days & times – book one and you’ll be able to have a once-in-a-lifetime interactive experience. During your elephant experience you will meet all 5 elephants, learn about Asian elephant care and conservation, help give an elephant a bath while learning about their foot care, and have plenty of photo ops! Your elephant experience is scheduled to last about 1 1/2 hours.


We highly recommend getting outside and vacationing safely this summer at Jellystone Park™. Camping is a great alternative and allows families the space to make new memories. While you’re in the area – check out The Preserve with your family or friends. If you have any interest in elephants, this is a great opportunity to learn more through an up close and personal experience.
