3dayz Special: have your protest mail hand-delivered to Morelia Zoo!

April 28, 2012



At the end of February the homepage of 3dayz featured a 3 days of action marathon for Yupi the polar bear. Last week, Ericka Ceballos – who is coordinator of the International Yupi Campaign – contacted us to thank all of our supporters for sending the many protest mails in support of Yupi during that action. She also gave us new email addresses to contact, but that’s not all…

Your protest mail will have an even bigger impact, because every protest mail sent before the end of this month will be printed and hand-delivered on the 3rd of May! On this date Ericka will personally deliver an incredible 76.500 emails and signatures in support of Yupi to the director of Morelia Zoo. With less than 3.500 signatures and 4 days to go, supporters from all over the world are now trying to reach 80.000 signatures.

Join the effort to get 80.000 signatures before the 1st of May: send a protest mail today!

Your protest mail will be send to the new Mayor of Morelia, to the Governor of Michoacan State and to Ericka Ceballos. Ericka will print your email and will add them to the 76.500+ signatures to deliver them to the director of Morelia Zoo on the 3rd of May. Please note: you might get emails on behalf of CATCA afterwards!



Dear Representative,

After reading about her on, I am deeply concerned about the continued housing and display of Yupi the polar bear at the Parque Zoologico Benito Juarez (Morelia Zoo) in Mexico. I support moving her to a more appropriate naturalistic accommodation in a more appropriate climate as soon as possible and would like for you to team up with Zoocheck Canada for advice in this matter.

Polar bears are uniquely adapted for life in cold environments and do poorly in temperate and tropical climates. In the wild, they inhabit extremely large home ranges, occupying one of the largest living spaces of any terrestrial animal species. They spend significant time hunting and tracking prey, walking, socializing, and playing.

At the Morelia Zoo, Yupi is housed in an antiquated, undersized, barren enclosure that does not satisfy her biological and behavioural needs. She is the only Arctic animal in a collection of temperate and tropical species and opportunities for viewing Yupi are extremely limited by her enclosure.

I understand that there are suitable facilities currently willing to provide Yupi with a permanent home where she can enjoy an expansive natural space to roam, more complex environments, and a colder, more suitable climate. I strongly encourage you to ensure that Yupi is relocated as soon as possible and urge you not to keep any polar bears in the future.

Thank you for considering this letter.
