Keep Wild Elephants Out Of Chinese Zoos
Zimbabwe officials could soon decide whether to ship up to six more baby elephants to zoos in China. One of four sent to Chinese zoos in November has already died due to the stress of capture, transport, and the brutal conditions at a zoo. Reports say additional elephants are being held for export. All were taken from the wild and face a grim future if sent to China. Please send an email today to the Zimbabwe Minister of Environment and the Director of National Parks. Ask them to halt any future export of elephants and instead work with conservation organizations to rehabilitate the calves back into the wild.
Send your email to: Mr. Francis Nhema, Minister of Environment, Ministry of Environment & Natural Resources: firstname.lastname@example.org; and Mr. Edson Chidziya, Acting Director of National Parks, Zimbabwe Parks & Wildlife Management Authority: email@example.com.
