    Six tonnes of illegal ivory seized at US port cities have turned to dust.

    The move comes as wildlife advocates are urging increased international enforcement to stop illegal traders from killing elephants and turning their valuable tusks into trinkets and statues.

    Otherwise, they say elephants may go extinct in our lifetime.
