    They're disappearing fast----blame the Asians

    An AP article, check the link. It's frightening. There was a ban on elephant tusks in 1989. When I was a docent at the St Louis Zoo, we'd state that the elies would survive, as there was a moratorium on killing elephants for their tusks.

    Enter the Asians, particularly Chinese, with their increased affluence. The elies and rhinos are going, going, perhaps gone way sooner than we thought. :eek:

    Ultimately, the only places these animals are going to exist is in American and European zoos.
