New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
Did you know you can still buy ivory legally in the United States? Unfortunately it’s true, and the sale and demand of ivory is causing the African elephant population to drop at an alarming rate every single day. Here at the Houston Zoo, we are committed to protecting animals outside of our zoo gates, and African elephants are in serious need of our support.
Our Houston community can help save elephants from extinction by simply telling our Texas representatives to ban the sale of ivory and ivory products in the United States. Join us in our fight to save elephants in the wild by adding your name and information to the initiative below. Signatures will be sent to our local congressman and representatives to urge them to ban the sale of ivory and ivory products in the United States.
Our goal is to collect 2,500 signatures by March 1, 2014, and we need YOUR help to get there!
Thank you for joining the Houston Zoo in our effort to save elephants in the wild. We couldn’t do it without you!
