The Super Bowl brought visitors to park at the Indianapolis Zoo. The money they paid is on its way to Africa.

Super bowl XLVI has raised nearly a six-figure sum for elephant conservation efforts in Tanzania.

The Indianapolis Zoo ran a park-and-ride shuttle to Lucas Oil Stadium from its near-westside parking lot during the Super Bowl. The zoo says it is sending $91,000 in parking fees made from those customers to the Tarangire Elephant Project.
