Zoo Moves Elephant To New Conservation Center

The Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium moved their first animal into the new International Conservation Center in Somerset County. "Jackson" the zoo's African Bull Elephant was moved by a large 18-wheel truck that was reinforced to allow for an elephant to be moved in it. The center expects for more animals to begin arriving at the facility, most notably, two more elephants that will be brought in from Philadelphia that the center hopes to be able to breed. The center also will bring in other animals that are endangered or in need of conservation.
