There is a story told about a village near a game park which suffered from problems of elephants eating their maize (corn) crop. Every year they complained bitterly to have the elephants removed.
Then one year an unusual tourist came to their village. This man was interested in collecting beetles, but not just any kind of beetle. This particular species laid its eggs in elephant droppings and was extremely rare.
__It was so rare that he was willing to pay the villagers a lot of money if they could help collect samples for him and ship dead beetles to him.
The villagers were totally astonished at how much money they could make. One dead beetle was worth more than an entire harvest of maize.
