Some conservationists oppose the planned relocation of 18 elephants from Swaziland to zoos in the United States, but a U.S. official has said the animal transfer can be done humanely and is permissible under international law.The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service last month approved the transfer of the elephants to Dallas Zoo, Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kansas, and Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska.However, a group of conservationists said wild elephants often suffer health problems in zoos; there is no evidence that options for relocating elephants in other African parks were explored; and that the relocation has no conservation value.
