The AZA Standards for Elephant Care and Management states:

Every institution should have up-to-date educational graphics and/or information about elephants on display to the public.

Communicating clear and appealing elephant information using graphic signs can involve and engage visitors.  Fun, interactive graphics offer new ways to learn about elephants and the conservation message of the facility.  Graphics and interactive devices can demonstrate how the elephant’s trunk works, illustrate the anatomy of the elephant’s foot, display the tools used in management, and even demonstrate current scientific investigations such as ultrasound of a fetus and the real-time infrasonic vocalizations of the herd.

The Elephant TAG/SSP Conservation Education Key Messages identifies important areas to consider when engaging visitors about the natural history, behavior and conservation of elephants.
