In a 70 percent landslide, more than 1 million people voted in favor of Initiative 1401 to protect elephants, rhinos, tigers, lions, cheetahs, leopards, pangolins, sharks, rays and sea turtles. The measure passed on 3 November 2015 in all 39 Washington counties, from the most liberal to the quite conservative.
The passage of I-1401 resulted from the teamwork of four Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA)-accredited facilities in collaboration with animal welfare advocates, conservation organizations and a generous philanthropist.
