Kenya prepares to burn ivory

20 April 2016, 21:01

Nairobi — Kenyan wildlife officers have started stacking 105 tons of ivory and 1 ton of rhino horns to make 12 stacks which are to be torched at the end of the month to encourage global efforts to help save the elephant and rhino.

Under a grey sky and amid mud from rains the night before, media and conservationists gathered to witness the breaking of seals on eleven shipping containers full of ivory transported from stockpiles around Kenya.

Kenya Wildlife Service Director Kitili Mbathi said Wednesday there is a real threat of elephants becoming extinct in the next 50 years mainly because of poaching bankrolled by the trade in ivory and hence the need for dramatic action.
