Please join us for The International Day of Action for Elephants in Zoos, a global event organized by IDA (In Defense of Animals).

Last year, Friends of Woodland Park Zoo Elephants, along with demonstrators in 33 cities and 7 countries brought awareness about the tragedy of keeping elephants in severe confinement.

Here in Seattle, Bamboo, Chai and Watoto spend 16 – 17 hours a day locked in a tiny barn stall – barely able to walk a few steps in any direction.  Due to our climate, this lock-up lasts 7 months each year!  Outdoors they get less than 1 acre.

Please spend an hour to expose the suffering of elephants worldwide. Voice your support for Watoto, Chai, and Bamboo to live at the 2,700 acre Elephant Sanctuary.

Where: Woodland Park Zoo, South entrance at N. 50th St. & Fremont Ave. N. in Seattle
When: Saturday, June 19, 2010, 11am – 12 noon

For more information please visit our Issues page.

Please also save the date for our fifth Jungle Party demonstration which is on Friday, July 9th at 4pm at Woodland Park Zoo.
