Elephant poaching: 'Record year' for ivory seizures

[ via BBC Africa ] 30 Dec

More elephant tusks were seized in 2011 than in any year since 1989, when the ivory trade was banned, international wildlife trade group Traffic says.
The group said elephants have had a "horrible year", with 23 tonnes of ivory seized - representing at least 2,500 dead animals.
It may be added that trade in ivory was banned in 1989 to save elephants from extinction.
