Two Canadian economists, in a presentation at the American Economic Association meeting this month in San Francisco, said that unearthed tusks from mammoths frozen in the Arctic 20,000-40,000 years ago may save as many as 50,000 elephants from poachers

They are ECONOMISTS not activists, interested in profit only.
This is expanding the ivory scourge, it will not save Elephants!
The DEMAND must be stopped & then the SUPPLY will too.

Really don't think this will do much to curb the slaughter much less save that many elephants. Wish i could believe otherwise. At least someone is thinking of a different option whether 4 gains or not. Long prison sentences is what's desperately needed or plainly just shooting the vile poachers. Very lil is being done at all both demand+corruption soar. thx Lone

No, re-educate people in China! Sanction them or whatever it takes!
