Until the poverty which abets poaching is eliminated, nothing can fully stop this disgusting practice.

Has anyone thought of growing ivory? Most skin bones etc can be grown. Why not grow ivory? Skin can be grown (yes it is only in a few labs) but the profit and knowledge would benefit everyone

The only elephants that will be left will be in zoos or sanctuaries.

How tragic! Are we going to have to lose these magnificent animals because of corrupt govt. officials and people who have no conscience or morality? It is so hard to believe that humans can stoop to such a level of depravity! The good people cannot allow this to happen. If we do, then we become silent witnesses of evil.
