"We have come to the decision to stop commercial hunting of wildlife in public areas from 2014, for shooting animals purely for sport and trophies is no longer compatible with our commitment to preserve the local wildlife as a national treasure" said Major General Ian Khama, President of Botswana.

"Land use, habitat fragmentation, changes in vegetation, the effects of drought, fences, fires and poaching are factors contributing to the decline of wildlife throughout Africa," explained Chase. However, the census showed a population "stable" of elephants, about 130,000 individuals.
