Namibia to auction 170 'high-value' elephants amid overpopulation

Dec 03, 2020 21:47 IST

A drought and overpopulation of the animal in the region have pushed to Namibia to auction 170 'high-value' elephants. 

The African country’s environmental ministry issued an advertisement saying 'increase in incidents of human-elephant conflict motivated the sale of the large mammal.'

The auction is open to anyone who is able to meet the strict criterion which covers quarantine facilities and a game-proof fence certificate and permit from conservation authorities from the host country.
