A zoo in Tennessee has become a symbol of animal rights and conservation in the US.
A zoo in the state of Tennessee has become, for the most part, the largest elephant conservation sanctuary in the country.
Elephants are the most threatened and endangered species on the planet and have been at the center of a battle for animal rights in the United States since the 1970s.
In 2016, the Trump administration decided to end the federal Endangered Species Act protections for elephants and other wildlife, which had been in place since 1882.
On February 13, 2017, the Tippecanoe County Commission voted to remove the endangered species act protections and start to dismantle the Endangered Wildlife Management Act (EWMA).
On March 10, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Board voted to kill the Endeavour Wildlife Management Program and begin the dismantling of the TNR program.
Since then, TNR has been dismantled and wildlife in Tennessee has been destroyed by a series of destructive wildfires.
Now, the sanctuary has been torn down, the animals are being taken from their natural habitat, and a new sanctuary will be built.
