The plan calls for the zoo to spend up to $3 million to send its African elephant, Watoto, to another zoo, and replace her with a new Asian elephant, and improve the indoor and outdoor elephant habitats.
The Elephant Task Force released its final report last October. The zoo’s Board of Directors and staff reviewed it and came up with the final plan.
The group Friends of Woodland Park Zoo Elephants slammed that plan on its website.
The Seattle Times had an in-depth story on the plan on Saturday.
