During the event, Hillary shared that organized poaching is “not just a terrible crisis when it came to the elephant population, it is a trade, a trafficking that is funding a lot of bad people.”

Kathryn‘s new short film The Protectors follows rangers who try to stop poachers in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Hillary went on to say that China is the largest market for illegal ivory, but the United States is a close second.

“It would be very difficult for the U.S. itself to be involved [militarily],” Hillary said. “…The bottom line is that we can provide support for the rangers, we can provide better equipment, and work with willing countries who take wildlife conservation seriously. I think we’re at the beginning at figuring out the best response.”
