Blame of the bolistas

Finally, those responsible for the protection of nature deal with the cause of the decline of the elephant. Now they agree to recognize that people are not the need for land to kill elephants and that they are driven by ball traffic.

A meeting in Kenya last summer has announced that global demand for ivory is between 5 and 10% of the elephant population. Elephants breed slowly: in the most appropriate conditions their growth rate does not exceed 7%. This represents an annual reduction of 2% of the population. It is a serious problem that the population cannot resist the pressure of the bolistas. As the population is getting younger, the teeth are smaller, so more specimens are needed to meet demand.

At this meeting it was decided to carry out a campaign to prevent the purchase of bowling among buyers, among other measures aimed at maintaining the elephant population. Another measure is to convince the bolistas that they are the ones who have the most interest in the survival of the elephant population, at least if they want to ensure in the long term a source of ivory.
