Happy World Environment day!!! The well-being of elephants is intrinsically linked to the well-being of human communities. If we are well, they are well. Strange? Not according to the researchers who have analyzed the spatial distribution of the carcasses of elephant laborers. There is a relationship between natural well-being and our social conditions. Poverty and corruption, in fact, seem to be very closely related to the presence of poaching in different locations.

We have often heard the question ‘What’s the point of conservation? Why save species that are disappearing? What value do they have for life on this planet?’. A few weeks after a United Nations report revealed a dramatic and rapid decline in biodiversity, perhaps we all need to ask ourselves these questions and find an answer that is convincing for us and for which we must fight… https://www.nation.co.ke/oped/opinion/Why-wildlife-is-critical-for-human-existence/440808-5125396-ndwc4x/ ...
