Asian elephants are suffering greatly at the hands of poachers. The illegal elephant trade is flourishing in Thailand and Burma, where wild elephants are captured and sold for their ivory or for tourism.

Baby elephants are the most valuable commodities in elephant tourism, but they aren't required to be registered until they reach eight years old. Wild elephants enjoy significant legal protections, but outdated laws and poor documentation make it difficult to distinguish between the "wild" and "domesticated" elephants, which can still be legally traded. Because of this loophole, baby elephants captured in the wild are passed off as domesticated with no documented proof. Requiring that babies be registered at birth is one compelling way to curb the trade and prove where the babies belong.

Write to the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) in Thailand asking they enforce registration at birth.

Deal with both supply and demand. Anyone buying these illegal goods should be severely fined and imprisoned along with the poachers and anyone else involved in the operation. Basically wiping out these people's bank accounts who have nothing better to do with their money is a great idea!
