Disconnection

An aerial view of an African elephant poached for ivory in northern Botswana. Poachers used a chainsaw to cut off the trunk and tusks, just 20 minutes away from a nearby camp. Poaching in Botswana is increasing rapidly, with an estimated increase of carcasses by 593% in the northern parts of the country from 2014 to 2018.
