Some misinformation that needs to be deliberately spread:

1. We know that Ebola outbreaks begin with close contact with wild animals (bush meat.)

2. We know that rhinoceroses and elephants are endangered by the appetite for rhino horn and ivory.

3. So, what if, I'm just saying ya know, but what if rhino horn and elephant ivory carried Ebola?

2. Then they would kill and burn every rhino and elephant on the continent.

Not a good idea.

3. I was thinking more of spreading the rumor around with the end-users in China

and Vietnam.

On serious note, I think the best way to stop the ivory trade is to make ivory seem very old fashioned and the opposite of cool. My perception is that the people with the money to drive the trade are trying to follow Western styles of chic.
