If poachers are still killing more elephants than are being born then how can they say the number has stabilized? Efforts to stop poachers have increased, but the poachers are still eradicating elephants faster than they can reproduce.

I think these countries need to put their armies on these elephants and use the poachers for target practice.

Everyone should know that we are running out of wildlife, but their back pocket won't allow them to think. I thank all the people who dedicate their live to protecting it.

Our action can not decay. We must be strong and not get depressed with these things. Think how much worse would this world without people like us who put all our time and desire for justice. And we must support those who put the body in situ to defend them.
