Mikki and Punch Coming to The Elephant Sanctuary from Louisville Zoo

From The Elephant Sanctuary
March 2024

Born in the wild, they have lived their entire lives confined in zoos. Now they will have other Elephants to interact with and acres and acres of space to roam.

Mikki and Punch Elephants

African elephant Mikki and Asian elephant Punch will be moving to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee from the Louisville Zoo! The move is currently planned for spring of 2025.

We are grateful to the Louisville Zoo for making this difficult decision and look forward to working with them as we prepare to welcome Mikki and Punch.

The zoo's elephant care team has begun the process of acclimating Mikki and Punch to the transportation process.
