Massive Elephant Slaughter!

WWF deplores elephant slaughter, urges end to open borders for poaching



Posted on 17 February 2012
Gland, Switzerland:
WWF has deplored the mass slaughter of elephants in northern Cameroon, and has called on governments in the region to address the issue of cross border raids by heavily armed poaching gangs.

Estimates of the number of elephants killed in Bouba Ndjida National Park by a gang crossing the border from Chad and believed to be supplying Sudan ivory markets that service ivory trafficking to Asia range commonly exceed 200.

“"WWF strongly condemns the brutal slaughter of 200 elephants in Cameroon,” said Jim Leape, Director General of WWF International.

“We call on President Paul Biya to launch a full response to assure the global community that he takes this criminal act seriously and will work with Chad and Sudan to bring these criminals to justice."

"This is one of the most horrific case of wildlife slaughter that has emerged in a long while, that only goes to highlight the urgent need for local and global action to protect these vulnerable animals."

A 2008 survey showed the park to be home to an estimated 350 elephants. About 120 fresh elephant carcasses, with tusks removed have been found in just the northern section of the park.

“The large scale of elephants killed in Bouba Jdjida requires a strong intervention of the Cameroon government to avoid similar disasters in other protected areas,” said Lamine Sebogo, WWF’s African Elephant Programme Coordinator.

The park is poorly resourced to deal with the scale of the assault it experienced this year – according to its conservator “the park is 220,000 hectares with only six game rangers very poorly equipped, whereas the poachers used Kalishnikovs”.

Re: Massive Elephant Slaughter!

Years ago certain western nations, and organisations, agreed to give aid to african nations that vowed to fight poaching. Hundreds of millions of dollars were dished out, some of which was supposed to go to supporting park rangers, and poaching slowed down for a few years. Once the money was all gone, stolen by each nations government, the poachers came back in force.
To stop poaching, the whole world needs to ban new ivory products. It is almost pointless for certain nations to impose a ban while others continue the trade but this is what has happened.

Re: Massive Elephant Slaughter!

If I was a millionaire I would buy out like 100 acres, and transport them to a safe place , elephants are beautiful creatures and It would be sad to see them go extinct.

Since pet cats kill millions of rare birds every year lets make the owning of cats punishable by death.

humans directly and indirectly kill a lot more birds than cats do. in fact humans tend to kill a lot more of nearly everything including their own kind than any other species. we hunt, pollute, and push other species out of their natural habitat as we move into it.
not to mention the USDA which kills millions of animals yearly "Birds are high on their hit list". maybe not rare birds but birds none the less. check out:
