Botswana, A Rare Refuge For Elephants

Amsurg Misses Q2 Earnings, Revenues, Shares Dip Marginally – Yahoo Finance

In all of Africa, there are about 420,000 to 650,000, according to some estimates. Elephants roam widely outside conservation areas in landlocked Botswana, which has just 2 million people; in contrast, Kenya, under pressure from poachers, has almost as much territory as Botswana with about 35,000 elephants and 45 million people. Elephants benefit from Botswana’s ban on commercial trophy hunting on state land that took effect this year to help other wildlife species whose numbers are in decline. Some elephants, who traditionally range across unfenced borders, may also have crossed into and stayed in Botswana as poaching escalated in neighboring countries, some conservationists say.
