Interpol to establish Environmental Crime office in Nairobi

The International police organisation Interpol announced  on Tuesday that it would establish a team to target ivory trafficking and more generally, environmental crime, in Africa.

The new team, based in Nairobi, will help further Interpol's Project Wisdom, which combats elephant and rhinoceros poaching and the illegal trade of ivory, AFP reported.

"The global fight against illegal trafficking has just been given a significant boost," said Australian High Commissioner Geoff Tooth as the initiative was unveiled at the Australian High Commission in Kenya.
