    Just saw on the news, British helicopter pilot shot down by poachers in Tanzania. Unfortunately he was killed.

    Wow, this is a telling quote from that article:

    "In 2014 the US Fish & Wildlife
    Service stopped the importation of hunting-
    trophy ivory into the USA. This move
    is a disaster for the Selous, as most of its
    income is directly or indirectly dependent
    on elephant hunting. If our remaining 15,000
    elephants are wiped out in the very near
    future, this ban would be a major reason."
