Why: Elephants were never meant to live in small urban zoos where lack of space and unnatural conditions lead to painful and often deadly conditions such as chronic foot infection and arthritis, and abnormal repetitive rocking, swaying and head bobbing, a sign of deep psychological distress.

Zoos typically hold male elephants in miserable conditions. The Birmingham Zoo, which will hold only male elephants, is no exception in that it provides far too little space. Males naturally range more widely than females, yet these powerful giants will be kept in just a few acres of space.

It’s time to end the cruel practice of confining elephants in zoos. You can help by participating in this very special event. United we can end the suffering of elephants in zoos!
