Will Asian elephants be OK?

We recently visited the Fresno Chaffee Zoo and enjoyed a day full of information from keepers and docents.

Talking about the new African exhibit got me thinking about our beloved Asian elephants. If the new exhibit is for African elephants, will the zoo be keeping our two beloved Asian elephants in their area?

I have heard that elephants do not move well and, as a zoo member, I am concerned about them. I am sure other zoo members, too, would want to be sure they remain safe and well cared for at our zoo.
