New report highlights East African ports involved in Ivory smuggling

A new report has revealed that Chinese ivory traffickers are present in virtually every African country and operate at every point along the supply chain.

The report, "Out of Africa: Mapping the Global Trade in Illicit Elephant Ivory" was commissioned by Born Free USA and C4ADS (a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to data-driven analysis and evidence-based reporting of conflict and security issues worldwide).

The three biggest culprits are Dar Es Salaam, Mombasa and Zanzibar.
