Bravo Mr White and much kudos to Mr Ali Bongo, President of Gabon!
It is high time that someone took the fight to the poachers and did something concrete to save Africa's elephants and other wildlife whose populations have been devastated by poaching for far too long!
Much respect. May their efforts be rewarded and may Gabon's wildlife begin to live free of fear from poaching!

Good for them - may God be their guide and may they succeed in ending it - this is what we should all be doing - waging war against these sobs!

That picture of ivory burning, makes me so angry. Burn the poachers right along with the ivory, that's what needs 2 happen! "Bongo is currently pushing legislation through parliament to introduce a minimum three-year sentence for poaching" Minimum of 3 years, are u kidding me?? For killing a endangered animal, with such violence & taking something that doesn't belong 2 poachers..3 stinking years? What a flippen joke!
