Kenya demands total ivory ban to stop elephant slaughter

Although I think this is great. My second thought is: "Are you SERIOUS!!! There isn't a total ban right NOW!!!??? Jesus H Fkn Christ!



Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday demanded a total ban on trade in ivory to end trafficking and prevent the extinction of elephants in the wild.

"To lose our elephants would be to lose a key part of the heritage that we hold in trust. Quite simply, we will not allow it," Kenyatta said in the keynote speech at a meeting which groups African heads of state and conservationists to boost awareness of the threat of poaching.

1. "There isn't a total ban right NOW!!!???"

That was my thought too. I thought all ivory trading was illegal and only done on a black market.
