Kenya destroys ivory worth $250,000


: Over one 100 tonnes of ivory was burned in Kenya. The elephant ivory’s estimated worth on the black market was about $170,000 and the rhinoceros ivory’s around $70,000. The fire was lighted by the Kenyan president, Uhuru Kenyatta.

Celebrities Kristin Davis, Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicole Kidman, George Soros, and Elton John were also there.

Kenya Wildlife Service director Kihili Mbathi says the ivory has no worth for them. Only the living animals matter. Kenya, Tanzania, and other countries heavily affected by illegal hunting of elephants have varying policies on this matter. Tanzania saves every piece of ivory, while Kenyans burn the monetarily valuable ivory each year. Mbathi also says the burning of ivory is meant to stimulate discussion of a global ban against all ivory buying and selling.
