Similarly, ads that mock men for being hopeless at performing


straightforward parental or household tasks

Even though there's a worldwide ban on the sale of ivory,


there's still an illegal trade and poachers can make a lot


But the British Army hopes it can help to tackle the problem.


Gabon has got a really high density of forest elephants.


That's why it has a poaching problem.
