El Paso Zoo (El Paso, TX)
Savannah was a 71-year-old Asian elephant who had been confined at the El Paso Zoo from 1997 until her death on January 30, 2024. She spent nearly seven decades held captive in tiny, unnatural enclosures, deprived of everything she would have experienced had she been allowed to live freely with her familial herd in India. For the last three years of her life, Savannah was held alone with no elephant companions and suffered from the zoos’ lack of sufficient space.
