I hope this works or at least improves the situation.

Heartbreaking to think those given the responsibility of protecting the elephants are the same ones taking money for their deaths.

As long as people keep asking for animal products, animals will continue to die, its a very sad truth!

Ruth's right but let's go deeper. As long as the poverty which drives poaching continues...animals will suffer. When you can feed your family for a year, one animal's life seems like nothing to you.

I don't know if this a solution or not.

Something drastic needs to be done and immediately! Time is running out for these precious animals. Poachers need to be killed on the spot! Send a message out to other poachers.

Well. at least someone's doing something, which hopefully is better than nothing. The government might have more authority....

The Kenya Wildlife Service's intelligence unit will be restructured and 50 four-wheel drive vehicles added to the fleet to increase mobility of rangers protecting wildlife across the country, t 600 additional rangers will be recruited next week. I really hope that none of the new staff can be bought off.
Thanks Cher.
