Re: Nice photo from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

@Anonymous032819   They give the reasons (if they know) on the web site and most of it is "human interference"  So most of it is poaching.  Not just for the tusks.  Little known is that a lot of the people there go hungry and yes, they will eat elephant or any other animal. Kenya has a long history and it's one of the biggest countries in Africa.  They even had an Empire.  Occasionally they grab land from their neighbors. Sometimes a different ethnic group will try and break away.
