Privatise The Elephant


 Share

Recommended Posts

The European Parliament is a keen supporter of the CITES ban on ivory: bad news for Africans, worse news for elephants.

To us, elephants are cuddly. To Africans, they are dangerous neighbours that trample crops and villages. The best way to incentivise the protection of the herds is to allow local people to treat them as a renewable resource, selling their meat, hide and tusks while preserving their numbers. Property rights, in short, will ensure the preservation of natural resources.

Unsubstatiated "free market" bV1lsh1t coupled with "renevable resource" drivel.

If "civilised" Europeans armed only with diggers can ruin own countryside imagine what Africans who have been supplied with all sorts of automatic weapons from rest of the world can do to their elephants should they be allowed to trade in ivory?

Ha this man is clearly in the pocket of the Banksters.

The only way to introduce a market for elephant flesh in Africa whilst preserving their numbers is to hire a Wall Street firm to audit those numbers.

It's always puzzled me why the wildlife conservation bunch don't go after the markets rather than the poachers- why not mass produce fake animal products, flood the market and destroy the financial basis of the trade?

If Chinese factories can churn out fake designer goods, why not fake powdered rhino horn?, or fake tiger bone products- without access to a lab most of the buyers could not tell the difference.

Then flood the supply chain with fakes- make a big announcement that you doing just that- and soon no one will trust the supply and the market will collapse.

Seems far more effective than chasing poachers around in a jeep.

How many species of farm animal have gone extinct? And I mean species, not breeds.
