The Sedgwick County Zoo’s Reed Family Elephants of the Zambezi River Valley habitat was announced as the second place winner in the 2019 USA Today 10 Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest for Best Zoo Exhibit.  

Nominees were chosen by an expert panel and voted on by the public. SCZ’s elephants held the top spot for about a week before Omaha Zoo’s Lied Jungle took over the lead and held on until the end.  
This is one of other awards the elephant habitat at Sedgwick County Zoo has won, including Top Honors for Exhibit Design by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums in 2018.
