What is All About Elephants?
It is an educational program with a cause!
It offers an inside look into the world of elephants past, present, and future. Offering school programs, clinics, and lectures, it is an up close and personal look at these great creatures as they roam in free-style enclosures. Together with our team of experts, you can help with our mission to provide care and a home for all needy elephants while learning, teaching, and instilling awareness about them. We also provide an inside look at a variety of other species of animals domestic and exotic. Our museum has a large collection of fossils, artifacts, and elephant memorabilia sure to amaze young and old alike.
With over 30 years of experience in the care and management of elephants, Patricia Zerbini, having traveled the globe to work, learn, and help elephants, realized that the curiosity and interest of the public and other professionals needed a place where an all-educational program could be developed. So she has started All About Elephants, Inc. with the hope to teach and share her experience and knowledge with elephant lovers worldwide and to INSTILL AWARENESS!
Two Tails Ranch was founded in 1984 by Theodore Svertesky (1954-1994) and Patricia Zerbini joined his venture a year later. The ranch started with 10 acres 1 barn and 1 yard. We now have 67 acres, 3 main Barns, 9 yards, 2 male barns, a work shop, refrigerated food storage and are working on our clinic. Since then more than 200 elephants have called Two Tails Ranch home, both Asian and African male and female.
Elephants have been boarded here at the ranch for all different kinds of reasons, some to be retired, some for temporary boarding, elephants needing a place to stay while their own exhibits were being repaired or built, and some for training or medical reasons. The ranch also was successful in breeding with the birth of two Babies Romeo and Juliette in 1990 and 1991.
In 2009, Patricia decided to open the ranch to the public to have educational programs available for both elephant lovers as well as professionals in the elephant field. Having traveled the globe working with elephants on three different continents, she did feel the need to have a facility where people could get up close and personal and get a first hand experience with these wondrous creatures.
Two Tails Ranch is licensed by the USDA and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Department.
