For $50 you can adopt an orphan, and the money goes directly to the project. You receive regular updates on your orphan via e-mail, as well as a copy of his biography, an adoption certificate, a water color painting of the orphan. Once you adopt, you may also make an appointment to see the elephant when he goes to bed, at 5pm, without the crowds.
