THE PURE IVORY 3 Kantian ethics defends the hunting, on the other hands. Due to the long-time hunting in Africa since 1900s, elephants become more aggressive in the wild world, which can be told by their reaction when they see human in the national park. The hunters hunt for the ivory and get pay after their hunting. They are in the dangerous situation when they fight with elephants. They work for hunting and they get money for their livings. They deserve to get paid. When there is a market for ivory, someone need to get to the resources. Due to the large demand of ivory, dealers need the ivory and hunters just do their works. Kantian ethics also defends the dealers. Dealers exist since there is a huge market for ivory. Driven by the profit, some dealers seek for trading the ivory under the two exceptions that Africa has. The two exceptions have been introduced in the film Battle for the Elephants , which states that Africa set two exceptions due to the pressure from Asian market. Trading could be done legally under the protection of the government and relative law. In this case, although it is illegal to trade the ivory, some dealers can make the ivory under the two exceptions. Kantian ethics explains the activist’s side. The activist in the Poaching Wars supports the legalize trading of animals. John Hume, a rhinoceros keeper, claims that legalize the trading and keep more rhinoceros could help to reduce the killing of wild rhinoceros. Hunters kill rhinoceros for rhinoceros’ horns. If government legalized the trading, the keepers would become the supplier of the horns and they don’t need to kill the rhinoceros for horns. Gradually, rhinoceros become farm animals such as cow and sheep while the high consuming livestock would not become extinct. Legalize the trading helps to ensure that the rhinoceros would not be killed for their valuable horns. It could prevent the rhinoceros from being extinct if the government make it as a law. Most people would choose to obey the law and keep rhinoceros. Therefore, hunters would not need to seek for wild rhinoceros and kill them for their horns. For the illegal hunters, which would be a small amount, the government need to punish them so that the rhinoceros could be protected under the law and people can still get their horns. Cultural Relativism

THE PURE IVORY 4 Culture relativism defends the actions of ivory dealers. Most of the ivory dealers and traders in China love ivory. They regard the ivory art as the top masterpiece. Elephant and ivory have good meaning from ancient China. In the film Battle for the Elephants , a Chinese trader introduces his ivories to the undercover journalist. He told the journalist elephant is a symbol of happiness and harmony. The artwork of ivory has been regarded as the gift after the elephant dead. In Chinese culture, elephants would be happy to contribute to the world. Ivory as the symbol of elephant could be memorable if it has been craved as masterpieces. People can always appreciate the true value of the ivory art work. Besides, the ivory has been craved to gods in

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
