The birds were seized by the local road police. The Gyrfalcons had been transported in a lorry of the local construction workers, the birds were then wrapped with fabric bandages with non-transparent caps on their heads – a typical “smugglers package”. The alleged owners assured the police that they had purchased the birds by chance from an unknown person in one of the villages of the Milkovo district, northern Kamchatka.

The three former sales totaled an estimated 60 tons (55 tonnes) of ivory. According to media reports, approximately USD $7MIL was yielded as a result by these three countries combined. This is merely a fraction of what such amounts of raw ivory would garner in Asian markets.

Both China and Japan have been approved as trading partners for this ivory and are known to be among the world’s largest illegal ivory markets.

The 57th session of the Standing Committee for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) ruled just months ago that China was fit to become a trading partner for the ivory, while Japan was previously approved.
