"First-of-its-kind, the Tembo Preserve in the beautiful cascading hills of Tehama County provides the ideal environment and climate for these magnificent beings. Never before have captive elephants been able to live so much like those in the wild; roaming, foraging, building familial hierarchies—and well, being elephants."

Dr. Joel Parrott, President and CEO, Oakland Zoo
