Detroit, MI — A new mural was unveiled Wednesday at the Detroit Zoo and it will go on display until Aug. 16.

The mural is part of a project to create a community space for the Zoo’s elephants, which has been at the zoo since 2008.

Zoo Director Chris Gorman said the mural was inspired by the animals’ personalities and the stories they share.

The mural is a continuation of a program called Zumba and is one of the Zoos signature activities for young elephants.

The elephants are a symbol of the zoo and its mission, Gorman explained.

Zookeepers also will be doing a dance and storytelling class on Thursday.
