Wild Valentine's gifts

Treat your special someone in the wildest way possible this Valentine’s Day by delighting them to an elephant trunk kiss painting.

If you’re wanting to say “I love you” in a BIG way Perth Zoo’s Asian Elephant herd have just what you are looking for.

Perth Zoo spokesperson, Danielle Henry, said: “Painting forms a vital part of the behavioural enrichment program of our Asian Elephants but this year we are romanticizing it by adding a Valentines touch!”

“Tricia, Permai and our bull elephant, Putra Mas will share the love, using their trunks dipped in elephant friendly paint to kiss  canvases which create a very unique heart shaped piece of ele art!”

“The best thing about this jumbo Valentine’s Day gift is that each piece of art is a one-off masterpiece and it is also the gift that keeps on giving,” said Danielle.

100% of the profits from all elephant art is donated to help animals in the wild including the critically endangered Sumatran Elephants. To find out more about elephant kiss paintings or Zoo Valentine’s Day hampers, visit Perth Zoo’s Zoonique gift shop or call (08) 9474 0444.
