    A record number of ivory seizures have been made this year, according to wildlife trade monitoring network TRAFFIC. The group said the elephant tusks recovered represent at least 2,500 dead animals. Most cases involve the illegal ivory being smuggled from Africa to Asia, with many wanting it for ornaments or medicinal purposes. http://www.euronews.net/
