2016: Another Fatal Year for Elephants

Elephants continued to be slaughtered for their ivory this year. With today’s announcement of two tons of ivory in Kenya, more than 20 tons of illegal ivory, plus 949 elephant tusks and more than 3,000 pieces were reportedly seized in 2016, with at least 15 large seizures in excess of 500 kilograms. Most large shipments were intercepted in Vietnam, although huge amounts were also found in Malaysia, Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan, Spain, Austria and Germany.
