You’ll Never Forget A Visit To This One Of A Kind Elephant Ranch In Oklahoma
The Endangered Ark Foundation in Hugo is a one-of-a-kind elephant ranch that is home to the second largest herd of Asian elephants in America. If you’ve always wanted a closer look at these endangered species, head to southern Oklahoma for an unforgettable experience.
At the elephant ranch, you'll be seeing the largest land animal on Earth. It is home to Asian elephants, which are slightly smaller than their African cousin. Asian elephants are identified by their smaller, rounder ears.
The Endangered Ark Foundation is a retirement ranch for circus elephants and helps preserves these endangered species.
It's an incredible experience getting to view these animals up close. You'll not only see full size elephants, but babies too.
The ranch offers public tours that last one hour long, during which you'll get an educational presentation and an intimate and up close experience with the elephants.
2017 public tour dates are held on Friday and Saturdays starting at 10:00 am.
You may even catch Rosie taking her nap!
The elephants receive a bath daily and pedicures on a weekly basis to keep their feet in good condition.
Elephants love playing...especially with water. The animals get watered down 4 to 5 times a day (sometimes more when it's extremely hot).
The ranch is a non-profit facility that is dedicated to ensuring the future of Asian elephants in North America.
