June 5th Featured Ambassador
Tembo the African Elephant
Tembo the African elephant joined the Topeka Zoo in 1976 and quickly became a staff and guest favorite. As described by one of her caretakers, Tembo has an immense amount of spunk for a lady in her fifties. She has the most incredible eyelashes and never wants to be left out of the action. Tembo loves pushing around toys and treats, showing off her incredible strength and grace. Tembo participates in her own health care, voluntarily working with her trainers to keep her healthy and fit.
Thank you for supporting Tembo by joining us for Steins and Vines!
Your ticket goes to support
The Topeka Zoo is able to continue to update the zoo experiences through community involvement and fundraisers.
Along with the implementation of a safe environment, the staff ensures animals are engaged in creative ways through a successful enrichment program. We are recognized as a leader in animal behavior training our successes with voluntary blood draws, ultrasound, blood pressure, scale, and injections for several species.
The Topeka Zoo has one of the best education programs in Northeast Kansas, our goal is to develop the next generation into future leaders, environmental advocates, and community stewards to create a sustainable world for people to inhabit and species to thrive.
Topeka Zoo’s number one priority is animal care. From the moment they're born to the specialized geriatric care, we seek to provide the best life possible for the animals that we care for.
Topeka Zoo is a treasure that is made successful by our many partnerships throughout the community.
Our conservation work takes many forms including hands-on conservation work in the field by zoo staff, funding efforts of organizations, making our own facilities greener, and using our animal collection to improve conditions for endangered animals through research in cooperation with other zoos.
