Who is responsible for the uptick in the slaughter of elephants for ivory? 
Catholics and BUDDHISTS!


Lots of informative links in this piece. National Geographic is also 
documenting this (short video at near the top of the nyt piece).

Africans are killing off elephants in military raids (helicopters, military 
squads, etc.), selling the ivory to asians (Thai, Chinese, etc.), using the 
money to buy arms; and the majority of ivory is used for religious (and 
tourist) purposes.


Park on your zafu and contemplate that for awhile.
