Kenya: CITES Convention ?Fails to Protect the African Elephant?


Animals  (tags: elephants, poaching, wildlife, ethics, slaughter )

Instead of demanding an end to the markets driving the slaughter, the conservationists say Cites Parties came up with weak compromises in a feeble attempt to stop the poaching.

The focus now must be on a global campaign to target consumers of items such as Ivory, Sharks fins, Rhino horns etc. etc. It seems the protection of these various animals etc are now in place but the consumers are yet to be held accountable for their practices. A shift in public consciousness is the only way to promote and enforce protection of these endangered creatures and therefore slow down poaching.

Thanks Jill it surely was a weak compromise to protect these animals.

If people would stop using Ivory, fins, horns, then the killing would stop too!

Poaching is a vicious trade and Serious Actions have to be taken to combat it!!~

If human greed for these items would be halted, then the demand would also stop! Thanks Jill.

We were not given dominion to torture animals. We were given dominion to love them and care for them.

Why can't they just let these wild, beautiful animals run free?

read and noted on 3-22-13 i have to say that these poor elephants just can not catch a break they are hunted down for there ivory or people just do not have anything better to do so they go out and stalk and shoot elephants these creatures and all others need vital protection just leave the wildlife alone they are not bothering anyone if anything we as humans are bothering them.

No demand leads to no supply. I wish we lived in a world where such atrocities never happened and good will could be extended to all. Unfortunately until then we will have to fight to save the deserving animals from the cruelty or poachers, trappers and killers alike.

Sounds like CITES doesn't really give a damn. Poor poor elephants are doomed. HUMANS SUCK.
