If you're looking for something today on this cold and rainy Saturday, Friends of Woodland Park Zoo Elephants are planning to rally in front of Seattle's zoo today from noon to 2:00 p.m. to draw attention to the abysmal living conditions of the zoo's elephants.

They hope to pressure the zoo into releasing the elephants to an elephant sanctuary, where they'll have companionship and the room to roam.

"Releasing Bamboo, Chai and Watoto is a win all the way around: WPZ will look like the heroes of compassion and save about $600,000.00 every year, the public and especially children will learn a valuable lesson in compassion and selflessness, and Bamboo, Chai and Watoto can heal from the traumas inflicted upon them by years of zoo captivity," the group writes in a press release.

Friends of the Woodland Park Zoo elephants are meeting at the street entrance to WPZ's South/Main entrance (N 50th and Fremont Ave N) at noon.
