Kansas City Zoo: Shut Down Your Elephant Exhibit!
The Kansas City Zoo has made the list of the top 10 worst zoos for elephants this year, and for good reason.
First, the zoo’s exhibit is shockingly small. By comparison, elephants that live in the wild have access to thousands of miles of habitat for feeding, mating, and playing. We know that putting pressure on legislatures and zoos can force them to shut down their elephant exhibits for good. When the Hogle Zoo in Utah was listed in the top 10 worst zoos for elephants twice, the zoo finally closed its elephant exhibit.
