African Wildlife Trust was there to witness the largest Ivory burn in history on April 30th in Nairobi, Kenya. Ivory from about 8,000 elephants due to poaching or human/wildlife conflict was burned representing a value of $150-$170 million.
Elephants are worth more alive. We must fight every day to stop poaching and push for a global Ivory ban in September at the upcoming CITES meeting.
Join the Fight. Spread Awareness. If a Trade in Ivory continues, so will the Slaughter.
