Every day, wild elephants, rhinos and tigers are killed for their skins, bones, tusks, horns and other body parts. Wildlife crime is now the most urgent threat to these species—and decades of conservation gains and whole wildlife populations will be lost if we don’t take action today.
Much as there have been recent calls from concerned groups and citizens to end the uncouth menace of elephant killing, poachers seem to be getting more spirited in exhibiting this heinous act.
Is the government talking more than it is acting? Whom should we hold responsible for our elephants and what measures are being put in place to tighten security that protects our wildlife? Are wananchi (citizens) helpless in this cause? Is there anything they can do to be part of the change? What are your thoughts?
