San Diego Zoo Safari Park (Escondido, CA)
Vusmusi (also known as Moose and Musi) is a 19-year-old male African elephant. He was born in the San Diego Zoo Safari Park to an elephant named Ndulamitsi, who was pregnant with him when she was imported to the US from Eswatini in 2003 despite global public outcry. Vusmusi resided at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo from 2015 to 2022, when he was transferred back to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido, CA. Vusmusi is currently confined with 8 other elephants, who all suffer from their facility’s lack of sufficient space and from being unable to engage in their natural behaviors.
