Elephants and Ivories

En 1986, Robin des Bois publie « Eléphants et ivoire végétal ». Un an plus tard, une élégante bande d’éléphants masqués tout droit sortis d’Art Déco et de Sherwood envahit les trafiquants d’ivoire à Paris. En 1988 les éléphants masqués saluent à Lausanne la décision d’interdire le commerce international de l’ivoire. Une victoire colossale. En 1997, le cartel de l’ivoire réussit à rouvrir les vannes du commerce international. Une défaite abyssale. C’était à Harare capitale du Zimbabwe. Le journal gouvernemental titre « L’Afrique australe gagne la guerre de l’ivoire ». Robin des Bois répond par « Harare humanum est ». De cette erreur, les éléphants ne se remettent pas.

Orangutans always knocked down
The orangutans are brought down by palm oil, clearing fires and retaliation from small and large producers. The rescuers do not know which way to turn and during these months of ashes and want for the adult and baby orangutans, the Nutella maker poses in a suit with a big smile on the front page: “We’re coming out of the Covid-19 crisis even stronger. During the stay at home order, we all ate Nutella”. The orangutans hate it. To be found pages 66 to 68.

Elephant calves trade : forcing through before the market closes

Elephant calves trade : forcing through before the market closes

Update 3:30 p.m.: after a 13-hour flight, the 32 calves arrived in Shanghai in an unknown condition. Temperature on boarding: 38°C. Temperature on arrival: 19°C.

Yesterday, 32 elephant calves were exfiltrated by a Saudia Airlines cargo plane from the Victoria Falls airport in Zimbabwe to China. The plane made a night stopover in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The calves’ final destination is business classified. It is probable that one of the beneficiaries of the calves used as attractive product is the Guangzhou safari park, where uninformed visitors can already admire elephants suffering from PTSD (Posttraumatic stress disorder) due to their violent capture, the separation with their family and captivity.
