The legal appeal, by IFAW (the International Fund for Animal Welfare), RSPCA
Australia and Humane Society International (HSI), will begin on Tuesday (11
October). It is expected to last less than two working weeks.
They are challenging a decision, made by the Minister for the Environment and
Heritage, Senator Ian Campbell, to allow the import of eight Asian elephants to
Taronga and Melbourne zoos.
It will begin at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal in 55 Market Street,
Sydney, at 10am.
