We should agree to send Maggie the elephant to a zoo in the Lower 48 as soon as they agree to return all our polar bears, seals, walruses and orcas. If the excuse for taking Maggie away is that the weather isn't right for her, then the extreme heat in the Lower 48 is equally unsuitable for all the above-mentioned animals. If it's a matter of her being a sole animal, then give us another elephant to keep her company. The children of Alaska deserve to see exotic animals as much as any other child in the Lower 48 states.
