Meredith Cochran Posted about 1 year ago How do we save African elephants from extinction? Perhaps this should be a United Nations issue. There should be some leverage that Kenya could use to get China to control the market in ivory. China has invested heavily in Africa and Kenya in particular. Is there something that China wants from Kenya that Kenya can hold back until China stops the ivory market? China has a tremendous control over its own people, fabulously wealthy or not. China could stop the Chinese ivory trade, they need to be given a reason to do so.
