And then imagine that you are right here in Denver! Toyota Elephant Passage is new home for some of the zoo's most beloved animals in addition to a number of important new species. Occupying 10-acres on the southern edge of the zoo, Toyota Elephant Passage's expansive complex will allow visitors to explore and discover the rich history of animals in Asian culture, their complicated relationship with humans and the efforts of Denver Zoo and its colleagues to protect their future.
Leadership in Animal Care
Denver Zoo is at the forefront of animal care, management and conservation. Toyota Elephant Passage will provide seven times the space of the current Pachyderm exhibit, creating one of the largest elephant habitats in North America. Asian elephants, Indian rhinos and Malayan tapirs will rotate among five unique habitats that will provide abundant space and varied terrain. This extra space will allow Denver Zoo to house a significant number of bull elephants and eventually become a breeding facility for elephants, rhinos and tapirs. New habitats will include exciting "upgrades" such as mud wallows, scratching trees, shade structures and plenty of water for swimming and bathing. To support a national effort to create a sustainable Asian elephant breeding program, Toyota Elephant Passage will be the first facility in the country able to house a significant group of bull elephants. In the long-term, Toyota Elephant Passage will allow Denver Zoo to become an Asian elephant breeding center.
Toyota Elephant Passage will be divided into three thematic habitats: Chang Pa Wildlife Preserve, Schoelzel Family Village and Village Outpost
