Declaration to Stop Tourism in San Antonio, Texas, Until Elephant, Lucky, is Free


One World Conservation has been monitoring an Asian elephant named Lucky at the San Antonio Zoo in Texas since 2008 after her companion, Alport, passed away in late 2007. 

Over the past seven years, Lucky has remained in substandard conditions in an exhibit that is too small, antiquated, lacks proper substrata, and does not meet the standards set forth by the zoo’s own accrediting body, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Lucky has been subjected to improper introductions with attempted companion, Boo, who passed away in 2013 after less than three years at the zoo, and Lucky has since remained alone, continuing to suffer in an inadequate facility.

Please join us in reaching out to the figureheads of the zoo and city of San Antonio. Join the pledge to abstain from tourist attractions in San Antonio and encourage friends and family outside of the city not to visit tourist attractions until Lucky is sent to a more progressive facility that can better meet her needs as a species.
