Now Is The Time To Support Our Topeka Zoo And It's Elephants!

    1. Petition by

      Friends of the Topeka Zoo

For 46 years, the Topeka Zoo has had elephants within their animal collection. Now, thousands of animal rights activists from outside our community- around the world - are urging the Topeka City Council to send our elephants to The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald Tennessee. We do not believe this is in the best interest of Tembo and Sunda.

Tembo and Sunda have resided at the Topeka Zoo for 36 years. They have a bond. To the citizens of Topeka and members of our zoo, our elephants are not property nor are they political pawns. They are living beings. They are part of our zoo family and part of our community.

Now is the time to tell outside animal rights activists that WE know what is in the best interest of the animals at OUR community zoo. Now is the time to do what is in the best interest of Tembo and Sunda. The Zoo leadership has the expertise to determine the fate of Tembo and Sunda. We trust their decision.

      Ellies are one of the most intelligent animals on Earth. They know and love family , friends and homeland. Please leave them be...

      If we allow a small group of people push us around and force us to give up the elephants. What is next? Our children and grandchildren will never be allowed to see or learn about animals. The Zoo is a place to see and learn. We need to stand up and let this group know we in Topeka do care about our Zoo animals. They need to leave the elephants alone and let they play!!!

      If you split these elephants up they will die! Dont you know that once a bond is created and then suddenly ripped apart the animals die. Dont do this.

      "..elephants are not property nor are they political pawns. They are living beings. " Don't separate Tembo and Sunda!
