"Wildlife trafficking long has been viewed as a conservation issue, but it has exploded into an illicit global economy monopolized by mafia-like syndicates and enabled by high-level bureaucrats and powerful business interests."
As far as I'm concerned, elephants are better creatures than any bureaucrat or "business interest." They are God's creatures, have close family groups and long memories, are highly intelligent. Murdering them is a disgrace.
Never in my life have I wanted to live on a planet where there are no elephants. What can I do? What can anyone do?

I'm about the last guy on earth who could be called an “environmentalist”,”animal rights activist” or “conservationist”...but I've been to East Africa and have seen African wildlife up close and personal.Having seen it I feel quite strongly that all reasonable steps should be taken to protect it.The details can be worked out by others.
