there has been a walk for elephants  organized recently in dar es saalam calling for a total ban on all the ivory trade


interestingly it was organized by the Tanzania china friendship association, some Chinese companies and wildlife ngo's 


so at least some chinese  realize that the current situation cannot go on

I just noticed that even the Namibian Professional Hunter's association supports the closing of all of China's ivory factories by the end of 2017. I'm happy that sanity is beginning to prevail even in the most unexpected quarter.
