The Elephant Celebes
I like elephants. I consider them majestic creature worth our efforts to save them, but we are going about it the wrong way.
First, we need to stop illegal poaching.
We can do this by providing money for a large, professional police force, in Africa, like our National Park Service. These forces will be used to conduct patrols to arrest poachers. Next, we go after the wholesellers of ivory by seizing their equipment and financial assets. Lastly, we go after the people purchasing illegal ivory on the black market, by imposing hefty fines.
Second, we make the elephants and the parks where they live financially successful for the local residents.
We do this by building facilities to employ the local residents. These facilities can be hotels for visitors, guide services in and around the parks, retail stores selling gifts, artist proving unique items, and ...
Third, we harvest the elephants.
Yes, that's right, we allow visitors to kill several elephants every year. This could be done by having wealthy individuals pay hefty fees to hunt in these parks. For additional money the hunter would be able to keep the trophy.
For folks that couldn't afford $1000,000 to $1,000,000 for the trophy. The elephants and other animals would be sold, in auctions, to the highest bidder.
Needless to say, this would never happen. It's so much easier to burn millions of dollars worth of ivory and other illegal trophies.
Oooh, there's all that corruption, in Africa, too.
