Did you know? Elephants need your help. The biggest threat to wild elephants is the ivory trade. 96 elephants are killed every day in Africa just for their tusks. Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is joining more than 150 zoos, aquariums and other partners in the 96 Elephants campaign to stop the killing. Please join us during Suki's birthday celebration by signing the pledge to ban ivory sales in Washington State.
