Quick Action to Demand that the AZA Help Lucky the Elephant Who is Being Held Hostage at the San Antonio Zoo

Very easy, please visit and do this quick action.

“It’s been just over a month since the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) granted the San Antonio Zoo an exemption from industry standards, condemning an elephant named Lucky to life in solitary confinement. Lucky has been alone since March, when the zoo’s other elephant, Queenie (Boo), died.

The AZA—an industry organization created by zoos for zoos—ignored pleas from IDA and thousands of supporters to deny the variance and to instead work with the San Antonio Zoo to place Lucky at a facility that could offer her room to roam and the companionship of other elephants. Now, with the AZA’s complicity, 53-year-old Lucky will likely be alone until she dies—a cruel sentence for any elephant, as they are profoundly social animals.”
