Petition for a Smoke Free Nashville Zoo sign now

We, the undersigned, hope that the Nashville Zoo will adopt a 100\% smoke-free policy. We believe that a family-friendly environment has the responsibility to ensure the safety and health of all its visitors. When children see smoking in a family-friendly, educational atmosphere such as a zoo, it makes smoking seem more acceptable to them. By making the zoo 100\% smoke-free, the Nashville Zoo will send a message to children that smoking is unacceptable, which will help reduce the number of children that try cigarettes and become addicted to this harmful product.

It is shocking that 53,000 people in the United States die each year due to secondhand smoke. Even though people who visit the zoo are outside, they are still in a confined space breathing the smoke from other peoples cigarettes. The animals in the exhibits are also exposed to the smoke as it drifts through the air.

Zoos around the nation are adopting smoke-free policies because they recognize that secondhand smoke harms both people and animals. The Nashville Zoo is a wonderful place for families to enjoy and to learn about animals and the environment. The Nashville Zoo should be a leader in promoting a healthy, smoke-free atmosphere for the benefit of its workers, visitors, and animals.

    Although I would be considered a "social smoker," I believe there is a time and place for everything, and the Zoo is certainly not the place to light up a cigarette.

    Please take this into serious consideration. This is one place children should be able to enjoy and learn about animals and the environment without their lives being at risk.
