Bob Barker loves helping animals of all sizes!
Three aging elephants - Toka, Thika and Iringa - currently reside at the Toronto Zoo, but it is getting to the point where the zookeepers, animal activists, and Bob Barker want to retire them over at California.
But that's a long trek!
And Elephants can't drive, so it isn't like they can go on a road trip.
Luckily, Canadians are known for their generosity - so the elephants will be getting an air lift from the Royal Canadian Air Force C-17.
And they'll get by with a little help from Mr. Barker!

There's nothing that gets Olivia Munn more excited than three elephants being set free!
Ok…maybe there are some other things, but we're sticking to our guns!
Olivia sent a victory tweet about three Toronto Zoo elephants and their transfer to a sanctuary.

Oh thank goodness!!
Earlier, we sadly reported that Buddy and Pedro, the two African male penguins who experts say have "bonded," were going to be split up so that they could be paired with females. With only a quarter of a million African penguins left, the Toronto zoo plans for the penguins to mate with the females for the sake of their endangered species.
But, thankfully, the separation will only be temporary, according to Tom Mason, the zoo’s Curator of Invertebrates and Birds. He says:
"There will be a limited time of separation but it will not be permanent. No matter what happens all the penguins will be re-united by spring. If Pedro and Buddy wish to get back together, they will be welcome to do so."
Phew! We were so worried about how lonely they would feel without each other. No worries, Buddy and Pedro! You will see each other very soon. Love conquers all!
