World Elephant Day is Saturday August 12th, but guests can celebrate it in a special way at Busch Gardens Tampa this Saturday, August 9th. The Central Florida theme park is the home to several different elephants, and is a huge supporter of conservation projects all over the world. This weekend, guests will not only be able to learn more about Elephants, and what they can do to help, but they’ll also be able to have some amazing experiences.
Busch Gardens Tampa will be celebrating World Elephant Day on August 9th. The goal of the day is to bring attention to the struggle that Elephants in the wild have all over the world. The animals have been hunted very close to extinction for their ivory tusks.

So this weekend, Busch Gardens is helping to spread the word about World Elephant Day with fun and informative ways to get you involved.
Here’s some of the fun:
