Packy Turns 50!
The Oregon Zoo’s favorite elephant, Packy, was born at the Zoo 50 years ago, on April 14. Help him celebrate with a pachyderm-sized party, including a birthday cake, music, games and more great events at the Oregon Zoo! Packy’s birth in 1962 helped usher in a new era of learning and conservation for elephants and led to more worldwide conservation efforts. But to us here, he’s simply our Packy.
