VS vernietigen 6 ton ivoor

De Verenigde Staten vernietigen vandaag tijdens een speciale bijeenkomst meer dan 6 ton in beslag genomen ivoor. De enorme partij ligt al jaren opgeslagen in een loods in Denver. Een werkgroep, ingesteld door president Obama, wil naar eigen zeggen duidelijk maken dat handel in ivoor niet langer getolereerd wordt.

Door de eigen voorraad te vernietigen zendt Amerika een krachtig signaal naar de rest van de wereld en wil ze meer ruchtbaarheid geven aan olifantenstroperij.
