Therefore, they lost the majority of the elephant population. I don't want to see that anywhere else." - Veronika Varekova

"In primary school in south-eastern Nigeria, I was taught that Hosni Mubarak was the president of Egypt. I learned the same thing in secondary school.

I think they should be the first ones setting an example - improving the legal punishments for those that are involved, reinforcing the borders from every angle, meaning that even the diplomatic plane that lands in South Africa should not have the green light to leave without having the plane inspected.

There's way too many important people that are involved that don't want to change." - Veronika Varekova
