The terrible destruction of well-known beasts.
Each year 35,000 elephants are falling victim to ivory poachers. If the elephant is to survive this appalling slaughter must be stopped. A large demonstration is taking place in London today with a view to curbing the killing. Concern is also being felt for rhinoceroses, of which 1000 a year fall to poachers. In certain countries rhinoceros horns are regarded as aphrodisiacs. Incidentally, they don't work.
