Syracuse Zookeepers Honor World Elephant Day With Behind-the-Scenes Video Series

Rosamond Gifford Zoo staffers in Syracuse, New York, have been showing social media users what it takes to care for elephants in honor of World Elephant Day on August 12.

The zoo’s elephant team has been doing an educational social media “takeover” to show viewers how they care for their eight-member Asian elephant herd.
