Charity organisation TRAFFIC said that 2011 it had seen high numbers of large ivory captures. TRAFFIC represents the support of Illegal ivory trade.
Illegal ivory trade has increased since 2007, the increase is over 800 kg in weight. But in 2010 they only had 10 large captures.
There were more than 23 tonnes in 2011, a figure that probably represents 2,500 elephants, possibly more.
Most recently 727 ivory pieces were found on 21st December. They were hidden inside a container at the port of Mombasa, Kenya, destined for Asia.
