The Edmonton Valley Zoo is home to a charming and precocious Asian elephant named Lucy, who has been the subject of great attention. Lucy was orphaned in Sri Lanka and was brought to the Edmonton Valley Zoo through partnership with the Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage and Colombo Zoo.

Lucy is often called a "people elephant", and  her herd is her zoo family. She simply adores her caregivers who ensure that she's happy and healthy.
