PAWS JOINS JOYCE POOLE AND 50 INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS CONDEMNING THE CAPTURE OF ELEPHANTS AND OTHER WILDLIFE IN ZIMBABWE

 

When reports regarding the capture and imminent shipment of elephants and other species from Zimbabwe to North Korea were published in the media recently, PAWS was shocked and dismayed. The carnage which occurred in the early 1980s, producing hundreds of cull orphaned baby elephants like 71 and Mara, had educated many to the horrors of capture, and countries like Zimbabwe have recently agreed to ban such practices. Zimbabwe is now reneging on its promised ban.

             

We have joined Joyce Poole and other scientists and over 50 international animal welfare and conservation organizations in protesting this "business arrangement" with North Korea which violates CITES requirements. To read the letter, click here.

 

Please join us by refusing to travel to Zimbabwe until they agree once again to ban such practices. Also write letters to the Zimbabwe Tourist Authority protesting this flagrant exploitation of Zimbabwe's wildlife.
