Will Zimbabwe Sell Its Elephants and Lions to Angola?
Zimbabwe is doubling down as it tries to reduce its high population elephants. President Emmerson Mnangagwa has mentioned Angola as a potential buyer as the country looks to reintroduce elephant populations into wildlife areas where landmines have been removed. Zimbabwe and neighboring Botswana, Namibia and Zambia, with the support of South Africa, are also making a fresh appeal to lift restrictions on the sale of ivory.
