Project Elephant at Blackpool Zoo
Project Elephant is the next phase in the ongoing development of Blackpool Zoo.
It's the single biggest investment Blackpool Zoo have ever made, and it'll see the overall footprint of the zoo increase by a further 3 acres.
Project Elephant, which will open in Spring 2018, is one of the UK's largest indoor elephant facilities and has been built on previously vacant land at the zoo, opening up an additional three acres to visitors.
It has been specially designed around the complex welfare needs of the mammoth species and will feature a raised indoor viewing platform for visitors.
Externally, the public will enjoy unobstructed views of the elephants in their large paddock, which includes a sanded area complete with bathing pool and a landscaped grass field.
