Some animals get a pet-friendly treat for their birthday, some get a celebratory Instagram post and some get, well, nothing, because animals don’t really celebrate those milestones. But one baby elephant is celebrating their 7th birthday with a bronze sculpture in Haddonfield’s Children’s Sculpture Zoo.

Baby Ndotto is a real-life elephant found orphaned in Kenya whose rescue by local tribesmen inspired Australian sculptors Gillie and Marc to raise awareness for endangered animals by creating a series of life-sized elephant statues. One of the resulting 450 lb. bronze baby elephant sculptures – an exact replica of Baby Ndotto – arrived in the sculpture zoo last month, joining other animals like a giraffe, sea lion, rabbit and frog. Find the sculpture garden at Tatem Park on Kings Highway East and Evergreen Lane.
