Hitachi and the Elephant Haven

The Elephant Haven in southwest France offers rehabilitation for Asian and African elephants from zoos and circuses. It is the first of its kind in Europe. To be part of this unique and worthwhile cause, we have donated a used mini excavator to the project. Initially the ZX38U-5 will be used to help prepare the facilities such as building fences and creating mud pools, then it will maintain the site and the barn in which the elephants sleep.
