Blood Ivory tells the story of how the professional hunting fraternity was the first to realise the threat to the elephant and how it kick-started the whole conservation movement. It is not a story with happy ending, however. It is a tale of war: colonialists against traditional practices and customs; newly-independent African countries against each other; poachers and smugglers against any kind of constraint. And at the heart of this tragic tale is the sad irony that it is only in the two countries which have not supported the international ban on the sale of elephant ivory (South Africa and Botswana) that viable breeding populations have been maintained. Robin Brown draws on his depth of knowledge and understanding of Africa and his career as a leading wildlife film-maker to paint a vivid picture of the impact of hunting on Africa’s elephant population.
