Here is where China can do some good for once and maybe also use this opportunity to give their military some real combat training. Everyone, including the elephants, win but the poachers.
If China is driving the demand, and considering the ways things work there, sending the Chinese army to fight the poachers would be like hiring Mafia to eradicate street drug vectors. They will... take over that is.

Yep, fox in the hen house. They would probably love to have direct access and after a few weeks, all the currently endangered animals would be extinct.

Feed them to the hyenas. Lions have standards.
