Cameroon destroys ivories in public

The Cameroonian government on Tuesday destroyed a big stock of ivories in public for the first time in history.

The approximately 2,000 tusks and 1,753 art objects from tusks destroyed by incineration are forfeited from poachers and craftsmen in different actions by Ministry of Forests and Wildlife.

According to World Wildlife Fund, at least 150 elephants were killed every year since 2012 in Cameroon.
