The Bronx Zoo's exhibit provides LESS THAN 1% of the space Happy would roam in a single day in the wild, depriving her of autonomy and the potential company of other elephants. We're fighting for her right to bodily liberty & release to a sanctuary where she'll be respected. 1/2

Change doesn't happen overnight & certainly with not just one voice. Add your voice to the growing calls for our elephant clients Beulah, Karen, & Minnie to be freed from the Commerford Zoo. Use the hashtag when you share why they should be freed to sanctuary.

Like our litigation, the basis of the legislation is rooted in the scientific evidence of nonhuman animals’ cognitive and emotional complexity. Stay tuned for ways to get involved in securing the passage of this groundbreaking law! 2/2

Soon we will launch a campaign for the 🌎's first legislation! It will recognize/protect the designated species' fundamental right to bodily liberty,ensuring that current/future members of species' autonomy will be honored within the limits of the city.1/2

This facility has been open for barely more than two years, yet three prime of life dolphins have died. This is one of the worst mortality records ever, especially for a supposed "state of the art" brand new facility.
