~ This article from the U.K. Daily Mail presents images of slaughtered Asian elephants in Myanmar (Burma) obtained during an undercover operation conducted by the U.K. conservation organization, Elephant Family.


A thriving Chinese trade in elephant skin trinkets causes the death of Asian elephants. Hides and ivory are openly sold across the border in China's Elephant Valley tourism development.


(In February, 2012 I was on special assignment in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan province with my highest “top leader”. He and his wife took me to Elephant Valley where I observed the illegal elephant trinkets on sale and saw the ‘elephant show’. Xishuangbanna is wedged between Myanmar and Laos.)

this is all very unfortunate and hard to control


indo china is a major area for wildlife crime

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
