Sunny has lived 29 YEARS ALONE in a tiny cell: Help her before it’s too late

Sunny the elephant has been TOTALLY ALONE in a concrete prison for 29 years. When it’s cold and snowy, she is forced to spend most days locked in her tiny indoor cell at the Nomi Ishikawa Zoo in Japan.

With nothing else to do, Sunny tries desperately to cope with her boredom and loneliness—by exploring the walls with her trunk. The heartbreaking evidence: Dark marks all over the walls of her tiny cell—as far as her trunk can reach—from Sunny doing this over and over, alone, bored and trapped, day in and day out … for 29 years and counting. 

It is cruel and unnatural to make Sunny spend her life in solitary confinement in such a tiny living space. It’s an undeserved punishment for an animal that is naturally highly intelligent and social. Elephants live up to 70 years, and are exceptionally social animals who have families and friends. They grieve their dead.

But finally Sunny’s plight has come to light! Sunny still has a chance at a better life: experiencing soft soil on her feet, companionship and enrichment to occupy her very intelligent mind. Elephants in Japan, together with wildlife organization Zoocheck are working to help Sunny and other captive solitary elephants in Japan. BUT we need your help! Please sign and share this petition demanding change for Sunny!

The more voices we can add to this cause, the more power we have to approach our targets and demand change. In Japan, this is pushing for the government and other relevant authorities to develop legislation that sets higher standards of captive elephant housing and care, including prohibiting the keeping of highly social animals, like elephants, in social isolation.

Thank you for your help to save Sunny!
