Botswana has a reputation for being one of Africa’s last great sanctuaries for elephants, while ivory poachers have been on a killing spree across the continent. But now there’s evidence of “a significant elephant-poaching problem” in Botswana, according to the scientist who carried out an aerial wildlife survey.
