The war against poaching and wildlife trafficking has grabbed the attention of millions. Heart wrenching photos of elephants are being used to initiate actions at the national and international level. Rarely is the full story told on how regulation or policy changes designed to help elephants are actually causing more harm than good. The Elephant and the Pauper is an informative video that reveals misconceptions of policy actions taken to protect elephants and demonstrates how Africa?s wildlife and people have suffered from importation bans placed on African elephants. In this video you will learn the past plights of conservationists in Zimbabwe and the obstacles they face today as they work to find a balance between large elephant populations and maintaining the surrounding habitat to support that population. This video is a message from the people in Africa who rely on wildlife as a renewable natural resource. It is a chance to understand the issues surrounding African elephants from people on-the-ground in Zimbabwe and we encourage you to listen to their story.The Elephant and the Pauper: The Ivory Debaclevimeo.com
