Elephant walks[edit]

User:Kcroes, your recent changes mention the walks two times but do not explain what is the special thing about them. Think we could refer more to ivory / elephant poaching but I didnt understand what you want to express. Polentarion Talk 21:02, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

The "walks" represent the heart of Jim Nyamu's efforts to draw attention to the problem of elephant poaching and the illegal trade in ivory. Nyamu is known in the elephant community for his walks; it's sort of his trademark approach. He's walked in many countries and has been joined by local dignitaries, activists, and citizens in general. During these walks, he's often invited to speak at various events, and receives local media coverage wherever he goes. I'm open to expanding this description here or elsewhere on Wikipedia where he is mentioned (poaching, ivory, ivory trade, elephants, etc.). I'm not an experienced contributor to Wikipedia, so would welcome your suggestions as to remedial actions or next steps. Thanks for your interest.Kcroes (talk) 21:22, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
Less is more. I reduced the links to one and added a third party source. Polentarion Talk 23:33, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good. Thanks. Kcroes (talk) 23:35, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
Welcome. Just try to refer to third party sources. I think the addition is warranted now. Polentarion Talk 11:01, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Species affected by poaching / Split proposal[edit]

@Bamyers99:: Thnx for the recovery. I did not intend it, think it was a network issue, but the article actually looked better. There is so much content now in that species section, it warrants a separate list. What do you think? Polentarion Talk 19:33, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

@Polentarion: Based on the Wikipedia:Splitting size guidelines, it probably should be split. --Bamyers99 (talk) 19:39, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
Bamyers99: Thnx for the quick reply. Done it! Polentarion Talk 20:22, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
