Elephants need new home

It would be a shame if the Sedgwick County Zoo lost Stephanie and Cinda, the two female elephants that have been on exhibit since 1972. But that’s what will happen if it doesn’t add another elephant by September 2016, per accreditation standards. And the zoo can’t add another elephant at the current exhibit area, which is too small and out of date. So here is hoping the Sedgwick County Commission can increase the zoo’s operational funding, which will give the zoo the financial stability it needs to launch a fundraising campaign for a new elephant exhibit.
