Elephant Enclosure Images

Google Earth Images

Most elephant enclosures in North American zoos, particularly in urban areas, are too small to maintain ground vegetation as the elephants either pull it up, graze it or trample it. The Google Earth images that follow show three zoo exhibits that are devoid of vegetation followed by one zoo exhibit and a sanctuary enclosure that are large enough to support ground vegetation.
