More than 350 elephants have mysteriously died in Botswana over the past few months. We talk with the Director of National Park Service Dr. Niall McCann about what could be causing these deaths and what's at stake for the larger ecosystem. Also, Goldman Sachs says if a mandatory mask order were imposed nationally, it could help the economy avoid a 5% hit to GDP. The study assumes that if everyone wore a mask, states would not have to impose mandatory lockdowns which are disrupting the economy. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's July 6, 2020, full broadcast.
