    About this Action Group

    Do you care about animal welfare? This group is for people that want to help a soon-to-be nonprofit called"Free the Oregon Zoo Elephants (FOZE)" to achieve their important three goals for 2014. .............................................................................................................................................. In 2008, Metro voters approved a $125 million Oregon Zoo Bond Measure, $31 million of which was dedicated to providing more humane conditions for the eight Oregon Zoo elephants. But since then, no action has been taken and now officials are planning an aggressive breeding program with the misguided goal of bringing scores of baby elephants into lifetimes of captivity. .............................................................................................................................................. Our goals for this group is to help FOZE achieve their 2014 goals: .............................................................................................................................................. 1) To ensure that Oregon Zoo officials take immediate action to protect the elderly and ailing Packy by shipping him to a sanctuary in a warm, dry climate, to spend his remaining years in peace and freedom. .............................................................................................................................................. 2) To ensure that Metro and Oregon Zoo officials honor their promises to establish an off-site reserve, where the Oregon Zoo elephants could freely roam. .............................................................................................................................................. 3) To ensure that Oregon Zoo officials abandon their plans to expand their participation in the elephant breeding business.
