Elephants are living creatures but think of all the other things out there that could harm them. In Africa the mines and the farming is taking over the land. What if elephants were to get sick there would be no one to help them. If we keep them in zoos at least they're basic needs will be met like food,water, and space. sanctuary's are the best way to keep them but, over time zoos will probably just turn into sanctuary's anyway. The zoos probably don't keep all the money they make the employees are working there because they like animals so the zoos probably use some f the money to help animals. Now the elephants tusks are worth quite a bit so there are poachers out there that just kill the elephant and take the tusks. Zoos only keep a few elephants so does keeping a few elephants in zoos really matter.

Yes this should not even be a debate. Animals are kept in zoos and elephants are animals.
