Well, one can assume that, by killing elephants for ivory, man is impatient in their method of flexing their dominance. We could easily wait, and use sustainable methods, but people are often impatient, and wish to kill, so they can get their money’s worth. It is my belief that humanity, as the dominant species, must take care of the environment. If I had it my way, we wouldn’t harvest ivory in any way. But I digress. The demand for ivory is too much for harvesters to consider harvesting ivory from plants, sadly.
