Elephant Odyssey showcases Southern California's amazing history during the Pleistocene era - highlighting the 40 Mega species that were lost during this time and linking them to the need to preserve the species that remain. This far reaching exhibit was done in partnership with the La Brea Tar Pits, The San Diego Natural History Museum and The Western Center for Archaeology & Paleontology.

Beginning at the tar pit, visitors learn what animals used to roam Southern California. The historical significance of the extinctions of the Pleistocene are brought to present day through the key species of the exhibit, the elephant. Visitors are introduced to the playfulness and the grandeur of the elephants that they have come to witness, while also being introduced to the present threats they face. DPA assisted the Zoo with the master planning of the exhibit, exhibit design and designed all the interpretive elements.
