Our campaign for Betty continues

Every week, CompassionWorks International monitors the whereabouts of circuses traveling with animals. With that information, we set up demonstrations and other actions that inform local communities about circus cruelty.

You may recall Betty's plight from signing our petition demanding her release to sanctuary, which has collected over 225,000

CWI Demands Justice for Baby "Dumbo"

On May 31, CWI organized a demonstration in Las Vegas of an appearance by Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi at "JCK Las Vegas", the leading jewelry event in North America. In recent weeks, Masisi has announced a repeal of the elephant hunting ban that had existed in Botswana for the prior five years. This disgusting move, which puts the live of 400 elephants on the line, is purely political in nature and snubs the opinions of leading conservation experts.
