Progress for Lucky's Lawsuit

Official Statement:

Dear One World Conservation and Free Lucky supporters,

As you are probably aware, Judge Xavier Rodriguez of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas denied the San Antonio Zoo’s motion to dismiss the Endangered Species Lawsuit (ESA) for Lucky. This is a huge step in the right direction for the lawsuit, and we have been over the moon since receiving the news several days ago.

Support Bullhook Ban in the State of Virginia

Dear One World Conservation and Voices for Asha supporters,

In July 2015, senior executives from One World Conservation met with Delegate Sam Rasoul, regarding the conditions at the Natural Bridge Zoo, specifically related to solitary African elephant, Asha, as well as to discuss a potential bullhook ban. The groundwork involved in getting this bill started was strongly supported by Kim Hogan of Lynchburg, Virginia, who in previous months also had a meeting with Delegate Sam Rasoul on bullhooks and the damage that they cause.

60-Day Notice of Intent to Sue San Antonio Zoo Sent

OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Dear Lucky and One World Conservation supporters:

On April 9, 2015, a 60-day notice of intent to sue was served to the San Antonio Zoo by the Animal Legal Defense Fund and the law firm of Melissa Lesniak. This gives the zoo a 60-day window to comply to the Endangered Species Act of 1973 or face litigation. To be clear, One World Conservation is not the plaintiff. Our role is that of an interested third party, and we will support this case in whatever capacity is necessary for Lucky's release.

Help Argentina's Lone Remaining Polar Bear, Arturo

Dear OWC supporters,

As you know, we took on a support role for the Arturo campaign, the lone remaining polar bear in Argentina, a few months back after someone reached out to us asking for help. We have been rather silent on the front as we’ve worked with individuals on the ground in Argentina and helped them construct a website that will act as a central hub for all the most relevant and accurate information about his plight.
