India Removes Elephants from Zoos and Circuses


The Central Zoo Authority (CZA) of India has issued an order to remove all of the country's elephants held by its zoos and circuses to national parks and sanctuaries.  The elephants now confined and exploited will be able to roam free.  About 140 elephants are affected.

Please take a moment to congratulate the Indian government for this big step in ending the exploitation of elephants.
