Yes, whatever it takes...
but how will extra rangers and "securing borders" help if someone caught with ivory products is only fined a few dollars per piece?!

74 elephants have died. I hope the rangers can save the rest of the elephants. It's so heartbreaking.

Need more rangers. Need spies in the sky and anything else that will catch and kill the poachers.

How do they expect to deter poachers with such paltry fines??? Less than a dollar per piece??? First these offenders need to face lengthy prison sentences and fines should reflect the black market value of ivory multiplied several times. This will help to eliminate the profit margin for poaching!!!

To dobra wiadomość, nie zgadzam się z zabijaniem kłusowników, bo wtedy trzeba by też zabijać tych, co na kłusownictwie zyskują, czyli bogatych białych. Popieram za to kary bezwzględnego więzienia.

74 elephants killed in only 3 months by poachers! Devastating. Hope employing more rangers will solve the problem, the use of drones is an excellent idea should be pursued.

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted. Add a 1000, probably need 5 times that many, but if it saves one elephant that is one more elephant from extinction.
