You might be wondering what is Ivory trade. Ivory is something that comes from elephants’ tusks that people carve into jewellery and statues. Ivory trade is illegal. The African government leader burnt ivory in a stockpile to tell people to stop poaching.In 1989 one leader said, “poaching has turned elephants into refugees.
Zach believes: Ivory Trading is a huge problem in our world right now. There are approximately 500,000 elephants in Africa but 25,000 to 30,000 elephants get killed every year.
During the clip I watched, I saw people were trying different ways to stop poaching like sending drones, personal training and private places for the elephants.
I feel sympathy for all of the elephants around the world and I am very disappointed with the people who are poaching.
I think that there should be more bans in our countries and people should make more donations for the elephants. I wonder what poaching will be like in the future. I wonder if people have finally inspired poachers to stop what they’re doing or it will improve and the elephant numbers will go down until there nearly extinct.
I learnt a lot about elephant ivory today. I’ve learnt that ivory can be turned into lots of beautiful things. I’ve also learnt that there are a couple of ways to save the elephants such as people using drones to spy on people if they are poaching and then report it.
So, what do you think about poaching?
