Armed poachers cost East Africa millions

Armed poachers cost East Africa millions | My Funny Africa.. Bushwhacker anecdotes | Scoop.it

Rich armed poachers are costing East Africa millions of dollars in illegal ivory trade. The illegal trade is mostly fuelled by demand in Asia and the Middle East, where elephant tusks and rhinoceros horns are used in traditional medicine and to make ornaments.

 

Uganda and her sister states in the East African region account for 68% of the illegal ivory trade in the world, according to a 2012 report released at the Convention on International Trade in Endangered species (CITES) at Bangkok, Thailand....

David Pilling - China is the key to saving endangered species - Business Circle

David Pilling - China is the key to saving endangered species - Business Circle | My Funny Africa.. Bushwhacker anecdotes | Scoop.it
By David Pilling To conservationists, Solio Ranch in Kenya’s Central Highlands is home to one of the biggest concentrations of rhinoceroses in Africa. To poachers, it is a moderately well guarded bank vault.
Greer Noble's insight:

If Thailand can ban ivory and trade in wildlife parts why can't Vietnam and China?! 

 

If Kenya, Botswana and Zambia can ban ivory and trade in wildlife parts why can't ALL African countries follow suit.. especially South Africa and Zimbabwe?!

 

Why should a few get rich when entire countries will suffer with loss of tourism related income and jobs when their wildlife becomes extinct?!!!!

 

Well let's hope China can do something.. and start by banning wildlife parts!

 

If the perpetrators of this cruel 'trade' are happy that poachers poison elephant (and everything else that feeds off the carcases) with cyanide then why don't we poison rhino horn? Could scientists not introduce something into the elephants diet so as to render their tusks useless? Even some type of die? Animals fitted with CCTV cameras as they're doing in Kenya?
