Years alone: 17


Teru has spent 37 years living in this outdated zoo enclosure at Yuki Park Zoo in Kofu, Japan. She has been alone for 17 years in this concrete prison. There is no shade. There is no companion. There is literally nothing. Teru shows stress via her non-stop repetitive swaying and bobbing.


“There is simply no justification for keeping elephants under these conditions.”

– Dr. Keith Lindsay, Elephant Biologist
