Say NO to the capture and export of baby elephants from Zimbabwe to China
The Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority has been holding 35 baby elephants captive in holding pens in the Hwange National Park area whilst they await export to China. Sadly, Zimbabwe is not stopping here; a further 20 calves will soon be ripped away from their mothers in the wild for export to foreign zoos.
From 2012 to 2017, Zimbabwe captured and exported 108 young elephants to foreign zoos despite opposition from other African countries, elephant experts and non-governmental organizations.
Now is your chance to urge the Zimbabwean government to stop the horrific and cruel export of live elephants to foreign zoos. Let’s stand together and tell Zimbabwe to keep African elephants in the wild, on African soil and not subject them to lifelong captivity for entertainment in facilities in China or elsewhere.
