Here's an idea: kill the demand for ivory rather than killing the poachers. Demand can be killed in a host of ways. Invent an artificial ivory that is indistinguishable from natural ivory and flood the market with it. Contaminate natural ivory that has been seized, using contaminates that will render the ivory undesirable at a future date. For example that turns the ivory an ugly color or blemishes its texture after, say, 1 year.
