88 dead elephants discovered in poaching hot spots in Botswana

The aerial survey of northern Botswana by Elephants Without Borders revealed four poaching hot spots and 88 carcasses of elephants who showed signs of having been killed by poachers.

Since the last wildlife survey four years ago the number of carcasses has increased by 600%.

The government admits some poaching takes place but disputes claims that the elephants were killed - saying they died "from natural causes and retaliatory killings".
