Update on elephants captured for export

Further to our last report, we have now been informed that 36 elephants have been captured for export to China. Of the 36, one has already died and the meat was shared out between the people at the boma. We are extremely distressed that the elephants haven't even left yet and one has already died. 27 elephants have been medically examined and found to be fit for travel but we don't know what will happen to the other 9.

We would like to thank everybody who has signed our petition. The link to the petition is:


Saviour Kasukuwere, Minister of Environment has stated that the elephants are going to the UAE and not to China. In view of this, a letter has been written to the Sheikh of the UAE by David Neale. The letter (below) has been agreed to by all the signatories at the foot of the letter.
