End Export of Wild Baby Elephants to Zoos

An elephant calf that was kidnapped from its mother and exported to a Chinese zoo is seriously ill, however, the zoo has denied the animal veterinary care. Tell government officials to ban the export of baby elephants to callous zoos that are ill-equipped to properly care for these intelligent, majestic creatures and to save future calves from a life of pain and misery.

Encourage Construction of Wildlife Crossings

Construction of wildlife tunnels such as underpasses and overpasses allow animals to safely cross roadways and avoid human habitation. The construction of passages for elephants in Kenya has proved highly successful. Encourage the Kenyan government to continue construction of wildlife tunnels.

Demand Release of Captive Elephants

For more than 35 years, three elephants have been on display at the Bronx Zoo in New York City. These creative, intelligent and social animals have been forced to endure frigid East Coast winters spent in small, cramped cages without room to roam freely. Depriving these elephants of a life spent exploring their natural warm weather environment with their herd is enslavement and therefore a violation of their basic rights as living beings.

By signing this petition, you will be urging conservation authorities to free Happy, Maxine, and Patty to a wildlife sanctuary where they can enjoy their remaining years roaming freely.

Signed them. I think I had signed one of them through another site. The one for the babies I had not signed. They are such sociable creatures, it does untold damage to them to rip them away from their families. Elephants mourn. I have seen videos of them crying for lost family members. They need room to roam and contact with other elephants. Being chained and beaten are horrible ways for these highly intelligent animals to live. It is beyond sad. I will fight for them and all animals, as long as I live.

Save Thai Elephants

As many of you probably know, Thailand is famous for its elephant culture.These animals are tortured.
There is a process called forced breeding, where a female elephant is chained with her front legs together and her back legs wide apart so she has no means of escape. A group of bulls (male elephants) are released and commence to rape the female. This process occurs for months, even after she is impregnated, all the way up until she gives birth. It can be so physically straining that the female elephant might break her back, and so mentally traumatizing that, upon giving birth, she might kill her baby because she is so terrified for its future.

Elephants are taken into large, scary, bustling cities and forced to beg for money from tourists. Many of them are hit by cars, and the city scene traumatizes them. They do not belong in cities. They do not belong at the disposal of humans.

Paul McCarney, it isn't enough to protest cruelty with a letter. Use your resources to stop it.
We petition McCartney to use his vast resources to make the owner of the elephant an offer he can't refuse. Then pay to have the elephant transported to the elephant sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee. Doing so would make a powerful statement for the welfare of all animals.

Protect Elephants from the Practice of ‘Breaking their Spirit’
Thailand’s government must implement laws to ban the “breaking their spirit” training method and release the captive elephants to a sanctuary where they can find peace. Elephants have walked this earth far longer than humans. These ancient and empathetic animals embody our own complex emotions and the many gentle spirits broken are filling the world with sorrow.

Act Now to End Elephant Slaughter

Earlier this year, the US government announced it would act to stop commercial ivory trade, sending an unequivocal message that the US will not tolerate the senseless slaughter of elephants and other wildlife—or the global crime syndicates that wildlife trafficking supports. 

But now, the proposed ivory rules are coming under fire. 

Take action below and tell US Fish and Wildlife Service it is the right decision to save wild elephants.

Praise Group for Preventing Elephant Cruelty

Elephants belong in the wild. They should not be forced to perform so that a few people can turn a profit. Marcelle Meredith is the Executive Director of South Africa’s National Council of Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA), and she needs to be applauded for leading the way in getting a South African business to cancel its plan to use performing elephants as a tourist draw.

Hours to save the elephants
Poachers just shot one of the world’s largest elephants, Satao, then hacked his 100 pound tusks out of his face with a machete.

Protect Elephants from Exploitation and Abuse

Wild elephants are being captured and tortured, smuggled from Myanmar into Thailand to serve as tourist attractions. According to the wildlife monitoring network Traffic, as many as 81 elephants were captured between 2011 and 2013 and forced to work in Thailand’s tourism industry.

Tell the Thai government to tighten trafficking laws, heavily prosecute smugglers and disseminate information about the plight of smuggled elephants to better inform tourists and thus reduce demand.
