Keeping elephants in Canadian zoos only perpetuates the suffering of these highly intelligent, social animals and provides an inaccurate view of natural elephant behavior, social activities and even their physical attributes. In fact, all zoos in Canada that are currently holding captive elephants should take immediate action to relocate them to more suitable facilities in warmer climates. Listen as world famous wildlife biologist, elephant expert and international speaker, Dr. Winnie Kiiru describes how educating kids about elephants can best be accomplished through television programming, movies, publications, internet or ecotourism. Listen as Dr. Kiiru effectively describes how viewing elephant behavior in zoos is not an accurate reflection of natural elephant behaviour, and in fact is only a lesson in seeing elephants exhibit aberrant behaviors in unnatural settings.
