Dear MoveOn member,
The Trump administration has announced that they will end a ban on the importation of the remains of elephants hunted in Zimbabwe and Zambia.1 This action will encourage more killing of these already threatened animals.
Reversing the ban now, when Zimbabwe is in political chaos and appears to have no ability or desire to protect its elephants, is outrageous and inexplicable.2 The Trump administration and Department of the Interior must reverse this decision and leave the ban in place.
—Mitch Merry, Endangered Species Coalition
