Namibia's Department of Environment, Forestry, and Tourism's advert in the New Era newspaper on Wednesday explains: "Due to drought and an increase in elephant numbers, coupled with human-elephant conflict incidences, a need has been identified to reduce these populations." According to reports Namibia is home to about 24,000 to 28,000 elephant. Thanks in part to international support, Namibia's elephants have thrived, growing from 7,500 in 1995, according to the government. The elephants for sale include entire herds.
