The 2024 Zoos SA Gala

Thank you to all who attended the 2024 Zoos SA Gala and supported our fundraising efforts!

Asian Elephants Burma, Putra Mas and Permai are packing their trunks and joining the Monarto Safari Park family in 2024/25 thanks to an incredible community campaign. While we’ve raised the funds to bring the trio to South Australia, there’s still more we need and want to do.

Join us for a mammoth night of celebration and fundraising at the 2024 Zoos SA Gala.

The Gala will help support Zoos SA, a non-government conservation charity, in its mission of connecting people with nature and saving species from extinction.

Having the three founding elephants at Monarto Safari Park will enable a new generation of South Australians (as well as interstate and international visitors) to form a connection to elephants and ignite a passion to ensure their long-term conservation. To do this, our aim is to offer the most inclusive and accessible experience possible, allowing every single visitor the opportunity to get up close and appreciate this giant species.

Why do Asian Elephants need our help? Sadly, the population of Asian Elephants is declining with up to 50% of the species lost in the last three generations. Educating visitors about the species and therefore ensuring their survival is vital.

Enjoy a delicious meal, give a cheers to conservation and help us raise funds to provide one ‘ele of an accessible and inclusive experience for all.
