Stop the Illegal Export and Sale of Baby Elephants!

Just days ago, more than 30 baby elephants have been torn from their families and will be sold to the highest bidder. We must stop this sale and transport from happening.
 
Stop the Illegal Export and Sale of Baby Elephants!
 
 

Dear Manfred,
As we speak, up to 36 baby elephants are being held in wooden pens in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. These young animals have been torn from their families in the wild in order to be sold and shipped overseas for profit and human entertainment.
Elephants are heavily reliant on their mothers until they are about 5 years of age. They live in very social societies and disruptions of this kind can lead to early death for these young animals. One of the elephants has already died, and it's only a matter of time before more tragedies occur.
These animals have been stripped from their families and their natural habitat, only to be sold to the highest bidder for the entertainment of a few greedy humans. This is in violation of the Convention Of International Trade Endangered Species which does not allow the export of animals under six years of age. Please speak out now to tell decision makers to stop the sale of these animals immediately!
Thank you,
  Emily L.
