ZIMBABWE No apologies for elephant exporting Zimbabwe is planning to export more elephants to China - and it won't say sorry for doing so. "We will not apologize to anyone," Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri, Environment, Water and Climate Minister, told reporters on Sunday. "Not even once because they are our elephants and our people live with a huge population of elephants and bear the trouble of interacting with them. " In the past, Zimbabwe's policy of exporting its wildlife to China has drawn the ire of conservationists, who note of a high demand for the ivory that can be taken from elephants' tusks in China.
