More than 100,000 people have signed a petition condemning the sale of 170 wild elephants in Namibia, many of which are reportedly from transnational herds which migrate across countries, as they have for thousands of years. Conservationists argue that these elephants do not belong to any one country, while with the government still dealing with the fallout of the #Fishrot scandal there is also a deep mistrust among the public but Namibian ecologist Dr. Peter Cuningham says the problem is more complicated than simply signing a petition.
