Kenya is set to burn🔥 about $172 million (₹1142 crore) worth of illicit wildlife goods😱, which contains ivory worth almost $105 million🐘, rhino horns and other valuable products. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta will light a match in Nairobi National Park to 105 tons of elephant ivory🔥, 1.35 tons of rhino horn, exotic animal skins and other products such as sandalwood and medicinal bark😯 - a pyre of unmatched proportions. It is also a message that mirrors the sheer size of Africa's poaching crisis💥. A record 1338 rhinos were poached in Africa last year while an Elephant is killed for its tusks every 15 minutes in the 'Dark Continent'😟. African countries have been fighting the crisis but were puzzled as to what to do with the confiscated goods🤔. The income that could be generated from the sale has been difficult for many cash-strapped governments to deny✋ but Kenya has proven to be different - they maintain that ivory has value only on a live elephant🙌.
Way to go Kenya❗
