World Elephant Day! says

World Elephant Day is observed across the globe every year and is designed to bring attention to the plight of elephants in the wild.

On Friday, Aug. 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saint Louis Zoo visitors can meet members of the Zoo’s three-generation Asian elephant family in River’s Edge, participate in interactive elephant-themed activities and hear keeper chats.

This year the Saint Louis Zoo is teaming up with zoos across the country to break the Guinness World Records™ title for the "largest display of origami elephants.” A global conservation coalition created to fight poaching and encourage a ban on ivory, 96 Elephants has set a goal of reaching 35,000 origami elephants to represent the 35,000 elephants that are poached on average each year in Africa. Reaching 35,000 will break the current record of 33,764 held by the Whipsnade Zoo in Great Britain.

Stop by the 96 Elephants booth to fold an origami elephant or two and help the Zoo reach its goal of 1000 paper creations from St. Louis. Learn more at
