Join us to protest Elephant “Waste” Lands on December 15 standard

On Tuesday, December 15, the Oregon Zoo will officially open its over budget and inadqueate “Elephant Lands”, which provides around 4 acres for the elephants, a little over 3 is outdoor space. This new habitat consists of small barren sand lots surrounded by trees and grass that are unreachable to the elephants. It offers little improvement to the lives of the zoo’s remaining 7 elephants. Join FOZE and IDA on December 15 to help us send a message and inform the public that this habitat is a waste of taxpayer money and of elephant lives.

“Find Packy” Scavenger Hunt standard

Packy is suffering from TB and so has not been shown in public for a really long time.

There are five cardboard toys of Packy, each sporting a letter of his name, at each of five local independently-owned businesses in the Portland area who are supportive of our cause.
