Lessons for Earth live on at Big Bone Lick by Stanley Hedeen

2008-02-19 - Cincinnati, United States.

Big Bone Lick foreshadows a warming Earth filled with condemned species.

Cincinnati Zoo lags in humane elephant care

2006-01-15 - Cincinnati, United States. Les Schobert

The Cincinnati Zoo's approach toward elephants is about as outdated as its elephant building, which was built in 1906 ("Elephant exhibit poses care issues," Jan. 2). The zoo ignores the wealth of scientific knowledge gained about elephant behavior and biology over the past several decades that should guide the care of elephants in captivity today.
