Help captive elephants
– Do not support any organizations that exploit elephants such as circuses or elephant trekking companies in Southeast Asia. Make sure your local zoo is truly dedicated to the welfare and survival of all elephants, like the Oakland Zoo. If you find elephants suffering at a zoo, don’t support that zoo, raise awareness about it and begin a campaign to improve conditions and/or to release the captive elephants to a sanctuary. And please support PAWS (Performing Animal Welfare Society).

Contact your lawmakers
– Tell your state and national representatives that you support a total ban on ivory.

Be an elephant advocate
