thanx Cher, emails sent. for those who dont have time, here is my very simple email you can copy/paste ;-)
Dear mister... ,
I have heard about the situation of the elephants Sophie and Babe. It is a good decision to want to relocate them, but i would ask you to consider relocating them into a sanctuary in a warmer climate where they would greatly benefit from round-the-clock veterinary care, room to exercise, and the companionship of other elephants.
It is also important the elephants stay together, since they are closely bonded.
Thank you, best regards,
