Elephants Hunting in Tanzania

I listened to an interview show on the BBC radio today. It was about ivory trade in Tanzania. The trade in ivory has been banned since 1989. But in Tanzania, 30 elephants are killed for ivory everyday. They send ivory to mainly China, Hong Kong.
Of course elephant hunting is not allowed in the country but the hunting is still happen. The number of elephants are decreasing. The government have patrol officers but don't work well because they ignor hunting for money. They get money instead of overlook the illegal hunters. 
Tanzanian goverment should strengthen the regulation for illegal hunting.
