VERY URGENT ACTION REQUIRED TO STOP ELEPHANT CALVES BEING SENT TO HELL HOLE ZOOS IN CHINA Please Act Immediately To Prevent This.

*******

Send mails to: environment@gta.gov.zw, echidziya@zimparks.co.zw, pangeti@gmail.com, hmadzikanda@zimparks.co.zw

SAMPLE LETTER TO SEND

Dear:

Minister Nhema, Mr Edson Chidziya, Mr George Pangeti and Dr Hilary Madzikanda

I am writing to express my deep concern about the transfer of wild-caught elephant calves from Zimbabwe to Chinese zoos.

Elephant calves have a very close bond with their mothers and with their female relatives. The removal of calves from their herds in the wild into captivity is devastating. The young elephants suffer severe, unrelenting stress, which affects their physical and psychological development. Many calves die.

The standard of animal care at Chinese zoos remains far from satisfactory, with facilities unable to provide for the behavioral and physiological needs of these animals. Following the transfer of four calves in November 2012, one has already died at Taiyuan Zoo. The others are likely to become ill soon.

It is my understanding that more wild-caught elephant calves are awaiting transportation to China. I respectfully appeal to you to stop the transfer and to work with Zimbabwean conservation organisations to rehabilitate these calves back into the wild.
