Kansas City Zoo (Kansas, MO)

Lea is an African elephant currently held at the Kansas City Zoo in Kansas City, MO. She was born in the wild 45 years ago. Lea is confined with 8 other elephants, who all suffer from their facility’s lack of sufficient space and from being unable to engage in their natural behaviors.

A future where no elephant has to endure the traumas of being torn from their families and natural habitats, bred against their will, and shipped from zoo to zoo is possible, and we need your help to make it a reality.
