Game Warden posted a topic in Latest Conservation news and talkWhen there was a previous burn, (and during the decade of running Safaritalk there have been a few), I said, This would show real some commitment between the country's political figures... Are the destination countries willing to work in such a manner with Kenya's govt? and If it needs to be a case of shaming those countries which are driving the trade, then is it being done? Are countries such as China now so entrenched and invested in Africa that no elephant range state country would dare to embarrass and humiliate them in such a fashion through fear of political repercussions? I followed the burn this afternoon via Twitter, (#worthmorealive), and I didn't see a tweet in Mandarin, (or other Chinese language), Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, (admittedly I didn't see every single tweet), and whilst I appreciate that a majority of social media sites are blocked in China, what about engaging with an expat Chinese community, whose second, third generations etc., are more engaged and involved in wildlife conservation issues? (And I've had a little experience in the past engaging with such an audience, having been helped translating messages and comments into Chinese.) The cost of having someone on scene, translating some of the tweets into at least one of these languages, for the twitter campaign #worthmorealive could have been met by any one of the attending NGOs. To be honest, I expected to see such engagement and was disappointed not to. I did see a tweet from People's Daily, China, which read QUOTE "#Africa declares anti-poaching war ahead of historic burning of 105 tons of ivory in #Kenya" How many more representatives were there from the Asian press corp reporting live, being part of the #worthmorealive twitter campaign? And I wanted to echo the sentiments of a few of the posters on social media who have recognised the commitment of those rangers on the ground who are doing such a great job, at times, putting their lives on the line. Who do care. Who do fight for wildlife. I appreciate your efforts, though I will never know your names. You will never have your photos posted on social media with the celebs and NGOs, but you deserve as much, if not more recognition than they do. Thank you. Matt
