None of the powers that be are doing enough. Poaching and trading could be stopped if they all worked together. They will leave it until there are no elephants left. I hate them all for not caring enough to stiop it.

Stop the Online Sale of Whale Meat and Elephant Ivory

Every single person involved in trade of ivory,rhino horn,whale meat and anything else that comes into that category should be given the death sentence. They are murdering animals every minute of every day and they are committing crimes against the planet which means against ALL OF US. Nothing else is going to stop them and one day the world will awaken to no more elephants, no more rhino and more than likely no more animals.
This is war and they should be treated as enemies and killed. It is far too late for softly softly and education - the animals do not have the time.

Brian May criticises Britain's Princes over hunting

'

Queen rocker and animal rights activist Brian May has criticised Britain's Princes William and Harry for embracing hunting while also launching an anti-poaching campaign. Prince William hit headlines earlier this month (Feb14) when pictures of him on a wild boar hunt in Spain emerged as he prepared to launch a new charity drive with his father Prince Charles to ban the killing of elephants and rhinos. On Monday (16Feb14), William's brother Harry became a target when a picture was published online showing him posing with a gun next to the body of a dead water buffalo in Argentina in 2004. Now passionate animal rights advocate May has waded into the debate, branding the Princes' passion for hunting sickening. He tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "It made me feel sick. This is right at the heart of the problem we are looking at in this government. It's the whole attitude of the privileged classes - you can rescue rhinos and elephants in Africa but kill at will anything you want if you're rich... It's an attitude I'm very familiar with as I'm used to talking to people who justify tearing living foxes apart with packs of dogs... It's not logical, justifiable or humane and is the same as people in the 19th century trying to justify slavery... That is an archaic way of thinking and it has to go." Another veteran rocker, Morrissey, has also criticised William's hunting, labelling the Prince a "thickwit" and branding the royal family an "embarrassment" to the U.K.

Hong Kong agrees to destroy 28 tonnes of stockpiled ivory

Thursday 23 January 2014

'

Hong Kong will destroy its 28 tonnes of its stockpiled ivory, the Endangered Species Advisory Committee (ESAC) announced yesterday. This decision comes after Guangzhou in China destroyed six tonnes of ivory earlier this year.

Paul Shin Kam-shing, the chairman of ESAC, told the Independent: “Elephants have a value and a function when they are alive. We should not be putting a value or function on their tusks and body parts after they have been killed in a cruel way.”

ESAC agreed unanimously to destroy 28 tonnes of Hong Kong’s stockpile by incineration after a four-hour meeting with government officials. The first raft of ivory tusks and trinkets will be destroyed within the next six months and the remaining stockpile will be burned over the next two years.

Kam-shing said that Hong Kong encourages “countries all over the world to make concerted efforts in combating illegal poaching.”

According to Kam-shing, Hong Kong would also destroy any future seizures of ivory and the government would actively promote conservation of endangered species in the country.

Hong Kong’s ivory stockpile is one of the largest in the world. The country sees major demand for ivory from tourists from mainland China who buy ivory trinkets, chopsticks and carvings to display as art.

USA and Philippines destroyed their stockpiles of ivory in 2013, but Hong Kong’s decision is momentous because it represents a firm commitment from a nation where demand for ivory is at its highest.

The government will retain a few tonnes of ivory for use in scientific and educational projects. This is permitted by Cites, the international body to protect endangered wildlife.

Conservationists have applauded the decision as a major step in the battle against the ivory trade. Andrea Crosta, Executive Director of the Elephant Action League commented: “I think it's a very important step, a much meaningful gesture than the crush in mainland China [earlier this year].”

“It's early to say if we have a new partner in Hong Kong to curb the illegal ivory trade, but it's certainly a concrete action to get rid of most of their stock.”

Alex Hofford, programme director for Hong Kong for Elephants also commended the decision to destroy stockpiles: "We think its great, we are really happy with the government’s decision. America, China, and now Hong Kong are sending strong signals to ivory traders.

“[Buying ivory] immoral: its wrong and it should stop. This message will get through to consumers and it will scare them. If demand stops, so will poaching."

However, Hofford argued that the using ivory in schools for educational purposes was akin to using bags of cocaine to educate children about the dangers of drug use.

He said: "We think that treating ivory as art sends the wrong message to children. We don’t think that dead body parts should be in classrooms. Ivory belongs on elephants and not in schools. Having ivory in glass boxes sends wrong signal."

Shruti Suresh, wildlife campaigner with the Environmental investigation agency welcomed Hong Kong’s recognition of “the management burden and the security risk” posed by the stockpiling of ivory.  

However, she said “we would urge the government to ensure that the stockpiles are destroyed in a transparent manner and after conducting an audit and taking DNA samples of the seized ivory for investigation and enforcement purposes.”

The Independent’s elephant appeal supports Space for Giants who work with international partners to stop the illegal trade of ivory. Follow our campaign page in the run-up to the London conference on 13 February, when heads of state from across the world will gather to find a global solution to wildlife

2013 Was A Shockingly Tough Year For Elephants

2013 was, it's an understatement to say, a tough year for elephants. Conservationists warned that Africa could lose one-fifth of its elephants unless something is done to halt poachers and that elephants could disappear in the wild in Africa by 2025.

End Illegal Ivory Trade in U.S.

The U.S. sent a strong message when it destroyed nearly six tons of illegally imported ivory last November. While the U.S. has made it clear that it will not support ivory trafficking, 30,000 elephants were still slaughtered for their tusks in 2012. Urge Congress to support laws that prevent the unnecessary murder of wild elephants and help end the illegal ivory trade.

How is international law on endangered species not being enforced? These pictures expose an illegal market going on under everyone's nose. This so called 'untouchable' wealthy POS and the people who buy from him need serious attention. Everyone knows my solution but at least a long eternal prison sentence in some hell-hole jail.

If this continues future generations will never see these animals alive. The evil palm oil industry is doing equal damage.

I don't like the idea of an elephant having to die so that someone can get and profit from its ivory and would like the killing of elephants to stop.

But I certainly would NOT support executing poachers or buyers.

While my tendencies are for pro-animal, I am also pro-humanity and there are other ways to protect the elephants than executing those who exploit them.
