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