South Africa will host the world\'s largest wildlife conference in the next two weeks, and one of the main items on the agenda will be how to save African elephants.
It\'s not easy-
Not only because the countries concerned have very different views on how to protect one of the most majestic creatures on Earth.
Three countries
South Africa, Zimbabwe and South Africa
They called for a ban on ivory trade.
They insist that it is more likely to be preserved by attaching importance to animals.
But their healthy number of elephants is in sharp contrast to many other African countries, where the decline in elephant numbers means elephants will be extinct in decades.
Nearly 30 countries have formed the African elephant union and have put forward a series of proposals to save elephants.
The main purpose of the proposal is to end the ivory trade --
This is a direct conflict with South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
There are fears that the three may work independently.
Namibia and Zimbabwe even want to remove their elephant numbers from the Convention on Trade in Endangered Species (
Convention on international trade in endangered wildlife species)
Fully protected list.
This will enable them to sell their ivory stock and any ivory they will get in the future.
Sky News in Kruger National Park, South Africa is especially open
In the days before the Convention on Trade in Endangered Species, poaching was carried out.
We joined Kobayashi Kally Ubise and his team patrolling the park to see them build skins where the Rangers can stay for a few weeks trying to catch the poachers.
\"When we saw a dead animal, we felt like we had failed,\" Ububise told us . \".
\"It\'s a call for us.
We have to work 24/7 to make sure these animals survive.
\"South Africa believes that some of its strong measures against rhino poaching have been successful.
Compared with this time last year, the death toll from poaching rhinos has increased by 17.
But at the same time, the number of elephants poached increased by 400%.
Nearly 40 elephants have been killed in the park this year.
This figure is relatively low compared to statistics from other countries.
But Police Chief Ken Magus told us: \"Any dead elephant is one.
We will never give up trying to stop poaching. anypoaching.
\"When the forensic team was asked to investigate the body of another elephant, we traveled with them.
Pilot Brad Grafton pointed out that the badly rotted body was close to the pool.
\"It looks like the Vulture and the hyena have caught it,\" he said . \".
Investigators began using their equipment to check the skeleton of the bullet hole, and within minutes they determined that the animal did not die naturally.
Soon after, when they found two bullets, their metal detector confirmed that.
They used the area as a crime scene and Senior Investigator Frik Rossouw insisted that although the body had been around 20 days, it would never be too late to find poachers.
\"If we can match the bullet and connect it to the suspect --
In addition to local intelligence, this can also be used to put poachers in prison for 20 years.
\"The elephant was still Ivory when the animal was found, and investigators speculated that poachers managed to shoot and eventually killed the elephant, but they either gave up tracking, either they were interrupted. they haven\'t had time to steal the ivory they just killed.
Police forensic investigator Frans Van Der Merwe said: \"This has never disappointed us . \" He added: \"This is simply indescribable. \"
