NGO concerned at reports of the theft of ivory stockpiles in Zambia and Botswana

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has expressed concern over recent thefts of ivory stockpiles in Zambia and Botswana.

Earlier in the week, Zambia announced that three tons of ivory tusks had gone missing from the Zambia Wildlife Authority's (ZAWA) headquarters.

Since February, a joint Interpol and IFAW operation in 14 African countries had arrested more than 200 people and seized almost two tons of contraband ivory, 20 kilograms of rhino horn and military grade weaponry.
