“I … am … alone….”
That’s what Lucky the elephant would tell you. If only she could.
As part of IDA’s Elephant Protection Campaign you will put “boots on the ground.” You will raise public awareness about the silent suffering endured each day by hundreds of elephants in zoos and circuses across the country…
…You will help IDA track individual elephants. You will take action to help them fight to improve life for all captive elephants.
Yet, in a shocking move, AZA contradicted its own requirement and granted the San Antonio Zoo an “exemption” from industry standards, condemning Lucky to isolation.
At age 53, and after spending most of her life on display at the zoo, Lucky deserves better.
The daily exploitation of elephants in zoos and circuses is profitable, so saving these noble creatures requires steady resources to pay for petitions, letters in local papers, undercover video exposés, wide-scale protests, personal appeals to political and industry leaders, and 24/7 tracking of captive elephants.
Elephants need fighters. They need friends. They need a force for good. Stand with In Defense of Animals.
Thank you for your fighting spirit!
P.S. In good faith that caring members like you will come through, IDA is hard at work for Lucky. We’ve implored AZA leaders to enforce their own guidelines — urged them to work with the San Antonio Zoo to relocate Lucky to a better facility that can offer the companionship of other elephants and room to roam.
