Since this is an editorial piece, I have posted it on the OP/Eds forum, but it is so well written, and from within Malaysia, that I am posting it here also.

Focus on Malaysia:

A mammoth mission

The growing Asian population and prosperity is driving up the demand for ivory.

And while the most important battle is with the demand, being a transit country does not absolve us of blame ...

Focus on South Aftica and Malaysia:

Malaysia seizes half a tonne of ivory

Malaysia was listed as the final destination, making this an unusual development, as in all previous large ivory seizures in Malaysian ports, Malaysia was simply a transshipment point for the smuggled ivory.

The 492 kg of tusks were individually bubble-wrapped and then packed in cardboard boxes. The boxes were hidden in a container filled with used tyres and flooring material. The shipment was falsely declared as polyester and nylon strand matting.

Another report on this week's seizure:

Focus on Malaysia:

Elephant tusks seized

On inspection, they discovered African elephant tusks in 53 television set boxes.
"The goods were declared as polyester and nylon strand matting in the ship's bill of lading.
"The boxes were kept at the back of the container along with some used tyres."
It is believed to be the first attempt to smuggle elephant tusks into the country. Previously, the country's ports were used as transit points to ship such goods from Africa to Far East countries.

Elephant poachers kill unarmed wildlife ranger in Kenya

Mohammed, who was unarmed, was tracking poachers along with other rangers with Wildlife Works and the Kenya Wildlife Service (WCS) after finding a wounded African bush elephant (Loxodonta africana). Another Wildlife Works ranger, Ijema Funan, was also shot, but is expected to cover. The poachers escaped and have not been apprehended to date.

Kasigua Corridor is located between Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks. Currently around 450 elephants are found in the project among many other native species.


http://news.mongabay.com/2012/0115-hance_r...lled_kenya.html


Another report - but there is no further news of the injured elephant.

Elephant Poachers Kill Wildlife Ranger

"This is the first time in 15 years that any of our rangers have been killed in the line of duty, and it reflects an escalation in violence caused by the in-creasing demand for ivory in the far eastern markets, especially China," Mike Korchinsky, CEO of Wildlife Work said in a statement.

Focus on Egypt:

Egypt Called Major Hub of Illegal Ivory Trade

“The ivory itself, the tusks, probably came from Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya and the Cote’ D’Ivoire. So those tucks seem to funnel through Sudan and then up into mostly Cairo itself and to a place called Khan al-Khalili, which is the main market,” he said.

Focus on Africa and Asia:

Monitoring a Grim Rise in the Illegal Ivory Trade

For two decades, TRAFFIC’s Tom Milliken has tracked the illicit ivory trade that has led to the continued slaughter of Africa’s elephants. In an interview with Yale Environment 360, Milliken talks about the recent increase in ivory seizures and the criminal gangs that supply Asia’s black market for ivory.

Well, for almost every elephant that is killed in Africa its ivory is ending up in one of two places: China or Thailand. China, I think, is engaged. China is seizing ivory and doing lots of good things — but they have to do a lot more. And they definitely need to be aggressively involved on the African continent with their citizens here, promoting a zero tolerance of involvement in ivory trade and other endangered species trade ...

With Thailand, the government is dragging its feet. The government may seize something before it comes into the country, but the name of the game in Thailand is: Get the ivory into the country and then our government won’t ever touch it... When you go into the marketplace, ivory is found in abundance. We do these surveys and we’ll identify around 25,000 ivory products for sale in a single survey!... Thailand is running the world’s largest unregulated ivory market with impunity.

Tusk haul from Dalma sanctuary - 32kg Ivory worth Rs 40 lakh

While the forest department did not think the recovery was a pointer to an established poaching racket in the sanctuary, officials are, however, fairly certain there must have been an attempt to smuggle the tusks since they had been sawed off and later found 4km away from where they had spotted a dead elephant on January 29.

The report found that while Spanish, Italians and Americans were the main buyers in 2005, more Egyptians and Gulf Arabs were now buying ivory rosaries and walking sticks, but the Chinese have become the principal buyers, reportedly purchasing over half of all worked ivory sold.

CEO Rob Atkinson Interviewed Concerning the Poaching of Elephants in Cameroon.

In the following interview by CNN's Brooke Baldwin, Elephant Sanctuary CEO Rob Atkinson discusses the horrific slaughter of endangered elephants in Cameroon by Sudanese poachers coming in from neighboring Chad. Guards in the parks are massively outgunned by the poachers. Banning the international trade in ivory remains the only solution, as well as increasing money to these countries for anti-poaching patrols.

“As of today we estimate that 480 elephants have been slaughtered in our park,” said Mathieu Fometa ... near the border with Chad, where the animals roam freely ...

The government has taken no visible steps to secure the park.

The killers are “dozens of Sudanese and Chadian poachers armed with machine guns and operating in gangs on horseback,” said International Fund for Animal Welfare official Celine Sissler-Bienvenu on the IFAW website.

Focus on Cameroon:

Geneva, 28 February 2012 – The Secretary-General of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), John E. Scanlon, has expressed grave concern over recent reports of the poaching of close to 450 elephants in Bouba Ndjida National Park in northern Cameroon.

Governments of the region are being offered support to find, and bring to justice, the criminals responsible and to locate and seize the poached ivory. Potential transit and final destination countries have also been urged to remain extremely vigilant and to cooperate.

KWS director Dr. Julius Kipng’etich said the strategy has seven key objectives all aimed at maintaining and expanding the elephant population and distribution in suitable areas. He added that proliferation of small arms in the country is also fueling poaching.

"There are currently over 300,000 small arms in the wrong hands in Kenya and this is contributing to poaching," Kipng’etich said.

He added that last year lone Kenya lost 278 elephants to poachers compared to 177 in 2010.

He said the strategy also proposes to modernization of firearms used by the game wardens in order to effectively tackle the menace of poaching.

Good overview:

Black ivory
Last year was dreadful for African elephants. This year may be worse


Illegally gathered ivory typically leaves Africa from Kenya or Tanzania in shipping containers. It often passes through Malaysia, where forged papers disguise its origins. Most is then dispatched to China or Japan. Some tusks also pass through the bazaars of Cairo, where Chinese traders are the biggest buyers

China is the biggest recipient of poached African ivory; and the country’s demand for the stuff is surging.

From Born Free UK.

FEBRUARY ILLEGAL IVORY TRADE NEWS

This month’s seizure figures represent at least 21 dead elephants, bringing the total since this time last year to at least 3,637…*

Elephant poaching news this month includes reports of a large scale slaughter in northern Cameroon’s Bouba Ndjida National Park, the killing of over 25 elephants in the Northern frontier region of Kenya in February by Ethiopian and Somalian poachers, and over 500 elephants poached in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo over the past 2 years.

* Customs authorities and police agencies can only do so much – seized tusks, carvings, chopsticks and jewellery represent a small percentage of all the illegal ivory estimated to be in trade at any point in time. It has been estimated that in order to supply this amount of ivory, 38,000 elephants - 8 percent of the entire African elephant population - are being killed annually.

Excellent article, hard-hitting in its anger, frustration and call to action:

Focus on Cameroon:

Cameroon’s elephants: weep not too long, we need you to act

The elephants of Cameroon are not so well studied as those in Amboselli so I cannot call out their names for you.

But weep for them.

And when you have finished weeping rise up in anger.

Raise your voice to ensure that the reaction to this senseless killing amounts to more than the ‘grave concern” expressed by the CITES secretariat in their press release this week.

Thanks to a member of TEC Facebook for drawing attention to this article:

China Fuels Resurgent Ivory Poaching

Ivory poaching in Africa, fuelled in large part by Chinese consumers, is reaching a scale not seen since the 1980s. The amount seized last year, twice as much as in 2010, suggests the killing of at least 2,500 elephants, but Interpol estimates that only 10% is successfully intercepted.
