ANTI-POACHING METHODS AND THEIR EFFECTS ON AFRICAN ELEPHANTS

by Haidar, Ryan Haissam

Abstract

Due to the increased popularity of ivory in eastern Asia, African elephant populations have diminished considerably during the 20th and 21st centuries. This thesis explores the relationship between inbound tourism revenue, corruption, political stability, both constitutional and practiced anti-poaching methods, as well as the rate of African elephant poaching. These relationships are examined through two separate ordinary least squares regressions with African elephant poaching data between the years of 2002 and 2017. The results of this study show that there is a positive relationship between political stability and the monetary punishments with the African elephant poaching rates. This study also shows that there is a negative relationship between potential jail time, inbound tourism revenues, and corruption with the African elephant poaching rates.
