Donna (Deceased)

52 Years old | female | Asian | wild
St. Louis Zoo (St. Louis, MO)

Donna was an Asian elephant held at the St. Louis Zoo in St. Louis, MO until her death in 2023. She was born in the wild 52 years ago. Donna was confined with 7 other elephants, who continue to suffer from their facility’s lack of sufficient space and from being unable to engage in their natural behaviors.
