Introducing Sabu!

Nicholas' half-brother arrives at ARK 2000

Sabu, a seven ton, 28-year-old, Asian bull elephant, and the largest in North America, has just arrived at ARK 2000.

Sabu is half brother to Nicholas, and they both appear to know they are related. Sabu is as calm and sweet as his brother, and is just learning to explore his area which is still in quarantine.

Like Nicholas, Sabu loves water, and splashes in his pool all day (view video here). He is indeed magnificent!

Visitors to the upcoming Grape Stomp , on October 16, will be able to view him from a distance as he splashes, dusts and devours grapes and grapevines!

Nicholas and Sabu have another 23-year-old half brother, Prince, who will be coming to ARK 2000 as soon as we complete another quarantine facility.


Prince and Sabu, both retired performing elephants, are in good health so we expect them to be with us for a very long time. Your financial support is key in helping us care for Prince and Sabu.

We need your help now!


The cost of another barn for Prince is $700,000, plus the $168 per linear foot for habitat fencing. We must raise at least $800,000 as soon as possible!

Please join our "Bucks for Bulls" campaign. Remember, your dollars built all of the habitat for Nicholas and Sabu! Help us bring Prince here to join them!


Thank you for all your support.
