Welcome to the Community Coalition for Elephant Retirement (CCER) website.
CCER is a Seattle-based community group dedicated to the retirement of elephants from zoo exhibits to an elephant sanctuary. CCER specifically advocates for the retirement Chai, Watoto and Bamboo who reside the Woodland Park Zoo (WPZ).
The mission of the Coalition is to encourage the Woodland Park Zoo and Seattle City Council to champion community values and retire the elephants Bamboo, Chai, and Watoto from exhibit to sanctuary. We are dedicated to building momentum to achieve this mission through education and outreach.
Please show your support for elephant retirement to sanctuary by "Liking" CCER on Facebook.
