Hogle Zoo:
Send Christie & Zuri to Sanctuary.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Hogle Zoo, the state of Utah & the USDA are failing elephants Christie & her daughter Zuri by opting not to send them to sanctuary, but to another zoo facility for the purposes of breeding.

While we are glad that one of our original aims has been completed and that Hogle Zoo will no longer keep elephants, it is absolutely despicable to condemn Christie and Zuri to further zoo captivity and to be subjected to forced breeding.

It is time Hogle Zoo did the right thing and gave Christie and Zuri a better life in an accredited sanctuary where they can enjoy the company of others and an environment suited to their inclinations and needs.
Please let Hogle Zoo CEO Doug Lund know that you expect him to put elephant welfare ahead of the AZA agenda now!
