The Edmonton Valley Zoo is home to an Asian elephant named Lucy, who has been the subject of great attention. Lucy was orphaned in Sri Lanka and was brought to the Edmonton Valley Zoo in 1977 through partnership with the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and Colombo Zoo.

Lucy is a beloved member of the zoo family and the Edmonton community. She is looked after by a dedicated team of animal care professionals who work tirelessly to provide her with excellent care.
