This is true around the world....until we eliminate the poverty which drives poaching, we'll never end it and we'll lose even MORE species.

I agree with Jana & Kathleen, we need to stop the demand for the ivory and for rhino horn, tiger bone etc, or the killing will continue.

I cannot believe that these countries cannot do more to stop this and yes let the world ban all ivory sales of anything antigues etc to be bought and sold
leave the stuff there is in the museums and stop the sale of anything ivory

Noted and signed. So long as peoples are starving, and families need to improve their lives, and there are BUYERS for poached items, it will continue. We need to focus on making living animals in their habitat more valuable than dead ones, so that local peoples begin to see an improvement in their lives. If not, poachers, just like drug dealers, will continue to win by luring others to their way of life.

The slaughter of elephants has nothing to do with a so-called "lack of economic opportunities". They will continue to kill elephants because they can, and because they enjoy it. Poachers must be shot on sight.

Signed, noted. I think a comprehensive approach is laudable, but people should remember that environmental groups like the Sierra Club do not have the resources necessary to do what is being asked in this petition. That will take a far broader effort from many governments and NGOs. Another problem with this is that while economic need can play a role for some, for others it is more a matter of greed.

I believe a lot of the poachers are soldiers like the ones that come over to Somalia, and use the Ivory to pay for weapons. A few years ago I remember Robert Mugabe paid for a pile of arms and ammunition from China with the Tusks ripped from the Zimbabwean Elephants faces.
