This article by Dekila Chungyalpa of WWF speaks of four Buddhist teachers from Thailand who are preaching against ivory trade and calling the attention of the Thai government to shut down this kind of business. To see this practice truly and totally abolished means that there is a need to bring the fight to the people. To borrow the words of the mentioned article, the success of this endeavor relies on giving back “the reins of conservation to local champions.” It is only when the people have clearly understood what is wrong and eventually act upon a solution to solve the problem will the crisis be truly averted.
