Elephant Poaching in Africa

Jump to last reply

Ninety per cent of the ivory confiscated at Nairobi airport is in Chinese luggage. Some say we are racist, but sniffer dogs are not.
There has been a big increase recently in poaching,with huge quantities of ivory going to lucrative markets in Asia including Japan and particularly China.
How do you think we, the average traveller to the African countries, can help?
We go on Safari and see the wildlife and the beauty of Africa but are we really aware of what is happening?
Surely we should make an effort to join and somehow support the Wildlife experts, and voice our horror at what is going on under our noses.
What do you think?
How can we help?
