3. Send a copy of your letter to Deputy Chairman S.S. Shazkikh who sits on the Committee on Social Affairs. Email: levchenko@klgd.ru

We sent our first letter to the city hall in July 2006. After receiving our letter, Pregolja's case was discussed in a meeting on the Committee on Social Affairs. Their conclusion was that it was "too late for Pregolja to start a new and independent life". Needless to say, this is a totally unacceptable answer that holds no truth or logic. It's never too late to improve the quality of a life! Pregolja must be allowed the freedom to spend the remaining life in the peace and tranquility of a natural habitat together with elephant friends. Pregolja deserves a more humane existance.


4. KALININGRAD TOURIST OFFICE:

Let the tourist office in Kaliningrad know that you will not even consider visiting the city until the elephant, Pregolja, is sent to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.

The success of Pregolja's campaign and the alleviation of her daily misery rest on the number of those who are moved to campaign for her. We encourage you to share this website with your network of friends, family and other personal contacts and organizations.
