5/16/11: Protecting the African Elephant
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, Utah – Monday, Doug sits down with zoologist Iain Douglas-Hamilton, one of the foremost authorities on the African elephant. In the 70s and 80s, poaching had a catastrophic impact on elephant populations. Bans on the ivory trade helped their numbers recover, but even this month, there are reports of elephants being brutally killed and stripped of their tusks. Douglas-Hamilton joins us to talk about his 40 year adventure with the elephants and about the tough times still ahead for the giant animals.
