Cote d'Ivoire:Is Côte D'Ivoire Becoming a Wildlife Trafficking Hotspot?

Published on April 12, 2018 by   ·   No Comments

[ISS] Since 2016, Côte d’Ivoire has recorded at least five major wildlife-trafficking events involving seizures and arrests. The most recent was in January, when 578kg of ivory and over half a ton of pangolin scales, leopard skins and other items were seized. According to media reports, the pangolin scales were probably poached and harvested in Côte d’Ivoire, while the elephant tusks came from West, East and Central Africa.
