aaaaaand now I have you here reading stuff, with your pen or your phone or at least your keyboard at the ready, I have another request:
In the meantime you will have heard that Proposition 1 passed in Seattle, certainly because most people didn’t realise what the hell they were voting for. “Parks? Great! Yes on that!” But now Woodland Park
Prison Zoo stands to receive $2 million additional dollars each year — up to $34 million — and maybe even more than that.
PZ has two lobbyists. Professional shouters and money-obtainers. We are not professional shouters and money-obtainers, but we do CARE. Please write to the Mayor and City Council. We were told they count the number of emails they receive for each issue. If you only write one line, it still COUNTS. You can send the same one line to everyone, but see those talking points below? (helpfully provided by Friends of Woodland Park Zoo Elephants) They are so good there’s no way you can choose just one line. Go ahead, indulge: write about them all.

Thank you. It feels like running in sand, I know, but the writing is on the wall, the end of captive elephants truly is coming. And you will be able to brag truthfully that you helped make it so.
