#tembeelephantpark #canonphotography #The ivory trade is one of the main reasons why the elephant population is in decline. Around 20,000 are killed by poachers in Africa every year. Animal rights groups and environmental campaigners have been working for years to find ways of halting the dramatic decrease in the number of elephants. Sustainable tourism is considered to be one of the main solutions, providing an alternative source of income to people in elephant regions. But the high prices still being paid for ivory on the black market are keeping illegal poaching alive. So if money is the reason for mass killings of elephants, could dollars also provide an incentive to stop poaching? This is what the World Wildlife Fund wanted to find out. The environmental organization conducted a study together with the universities of Vermont and Cambridge on the financial impact of illegal hunting on tourism. The results were impressive: The African tourism sector loses around $25 million every year due to elephant poaching alone. "Poaching is not only an ecological catastrophe," said Christoph Heinrich, director of nature conservation at WWF Germany. "It also has a substantial economic disadvantage."
