Challenge yourself, challenge others, and help us support elephants!
WHAT WE ARE SUPPORTING
Elephants are the largest and heaviest animals on land. Known as a keystone species, they play an important role in maintaining the balance of all other species in their natural habitat. Without them, many species would not survive. Sadly, the number of elephants in the wild is rapidly declining. Today, both Asian and African elephants are endangered. Every year more species lose their race for survival and disappear from the wild. But it is a race we can win, and YOU CAN HELP.
Participate, raise funds, and/or donate online to support saving these incredible animals and YOUR Topeka Zoo!
