For the sea lion, rabbit & toad Haddonfield held a vote to choose which animal would come to our town. The sea lion won. However, the late Eric Berg was kind enough to send us 2 more sculptures to help create our Children’s Sculpture Zoo.
The giraffe “Tumi” was donated by a Haddonfield resident and was likely made in the 1970s in Vietnam. Tumi is 1,1000 pounds and stands over 15 feet tall!
Our newest addition is our baby life-size elephant named “Ndotto” which is modeled after a real-life orphaned baby elephant found in Kenya in 2014. The real-life elephant was rescued by local tribesmen, rehabilitated at the world-renowned Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. You can see videos here > www.SheldrickWildlifeTrust.org/orphans/ndotto
