Nobody needs #elephant tusk more than an elephant.

But some don't agree. Botswana has decided to remove ban on hunting. In first auction license for hunting 70 elephants has been approved. Where best will be hunted & tusks will be taken as a trophy. For Conservation !!
Concept of trophy hunting is that money will be pumped back for conservation. Since many governments cant afford. People miss;

- hunters always chose best progeny. Since they are paying for it. With time population lose best genetic material. 2/n
- elephants have complex social structures. They learn from old members for many years, especially female members.

Hunters hunt big & old only. It breaks the families. With this breks the social setup also. 3/n
- experienced elephants know the roads & corridors, accumulated in decades. They are long ranging animals. They know how to cope with disasters, say drought etc.

When experienced are removed the families & Youngers are left to fend. They can't overcome natural disasters. 4/n
