Stop Export of #Zimbabwe’s Baby Elephants

I just signed the petition: “Stop Export of Zimbabwe’s Baby Elephants”  Will you join me in supporting this issue? http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/661/007/628/

According to news reports, 34 baby elephants, some as young as two years old, have been taken from their families for export into a life of captivity.

News reports are sketchy, it may be that this capture and export is entirely legal, but the government can still stop it.

Elephants have deep family bonds — this loss will be devastating to the elephants left behind and the captured young have a poor chance of survival.

The Zimbabwe government has the power to choose a more humane fate for these helpless elephants. Urge Zimbabwe’s Ministers for Environment and Tourism to stop the export and return these elephants to the wild.
