It has to be banned! Thanks, Cher.

Make this International Law, make the fines so high and prison term so long, that it is no longer worth the risk of poaching. That of course, would cover all poaching.

Again, more international accusations. We know who the big offenders are; it long overdue in not bringing charges against China in The Hague.

CITIES and these organizations keep telling us about the ivory but why didnt they do more they could have done They know who the main culprits are and unless they take some extreme measures the world will lose its elephants and we will blame them for not doing more to stop it

Noted thanks

Not good news.
As I state, exterminate the hunters/poachers and anyone involved in this vile trade

Elephants in all countries are at risk for their ivory. China buys more black market ivory, or smuggles it in, than anywhere else in the world. Poachers have to be stopped very soon!! Why not use drones to spot them, and bring them to justice, with huge fines and long jail time. Some have to be caught and given these sentences to have others think it over as being too risky, and not worth the money. Everything comes down to money unfortunately. Thanks for posting this Cher.

Thanks Cher, this needs to be banned and needs to be banned now, make the penalties so large that people will not want to do it.
