New Video of Rosie & Opal
We have posted a new video of our resident elephants on our Facebook page: Rosie and Opal in January Thaw. Turn up your volume to hear Dr. Jim encourage the girls to move forward and to hear them trumpet. You can view our Facebook page without logging in to the social network. Just go to it as you would any website at www.facebook.com/hopeelephants.
Hope Elephants encourages visits by individuals, groups, and school classes at 11:30 and 3:30 daily except Thursdays, but because it is not an entertainment venue, walk-up visitors are not allowed. Arrangements can be made for a scheduled presentation by calling 207-619-4801 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We never charge a fee for a visit, but we do request that individual visitors and family groups consider making a suggested donation. These donations are used to fund care of our resident elephants, maintain the facilities and deliver educational programming. Hope Elephants is a 501(c) (3) organization.
Currently, Rosie and Opal, a pair of retired aging and injured circus elephants, receive state-of-the-art physical therapy and nutritional support in a purpose-built habitat dedicated to their needs. School children and others of all ages experience elephants in a way unavailable anywhere else in the country. The goal of Hope Elephants' educational program is to inspire visitors to act upon their experience and find their own path to participate in wildlife conservation.
