Elephants

 Been a couple of weeks since I last posted, so here goes.

Because it's cute - have a baby elephant.


A baby elephant eats in a swamp in Amboseli national park, Kenya

He's celebrating the fact that China is shutting down it's ivory trade - http://www.itv.com/news/2017-03-31/china-shuts-down-a-third-of-ivory-factories-and-shops-ahead-of-formal-ban/
There's a risk that the trade may move underground, but this is still good news.  Reducing demand is likely to have more long-term effect than catching poachers (though both are necessary)

Finally China made some first steps. But they must stop killing tigers and other animals too!!!
The baby elephant is very cute.

I totally agree about tigers. At least it is a step in the right direction.
