Description

An illegal stock pile of ivory recovered from across Kenya arrived at the Kenya Wildlife Service headquarters in Nairobi on Friday. The stock pile will be burned at the end of the month during the Giant Clubs Summit hosted by the east African nation. The first consignment was transported under heavy security by KWS wardens and has been unpacked and stored away in secure containers. The ivory, which consists of elephant tusks and rhinoceros horns from various towns, has been inventoried and is going through a verification process conducted by auditing and assurance firms, who are keeping track of the quantities being moved. The Kenyan government wants to send a clear message to poachers who continue to slaughter some of the country's most threatened species.
