Update: My speculation on why Kenya is involved seems wrong, in light of today's news saying that testing has been done that proves ivory confiscated in Thailand is not from Kenyan elephants. Kenya's involvement is that customs and security officials in the airports are allowing illegal ivory (sourced in Tanzania and Zambia) to be transported out of the country. http://www.nation.co.ke/News/Kenya%20used%20as%20illegal%20ivory%20trade%20route%20/-/1056/961568/-/f81o1g/-/index.html

This is lamentable but I am glad that Thai authorities are fighting to prosecute these smugglers. Elephants make a national symbol for Thailand.

The Elephant is a revered symbol of the Thai royal house. They must be protected for bio diversity and as a part of Thailand's cultural heritage.

Thank you very much for sharing this, it's really great that they were able to stop them.

I'm passionate about wild elephant conservation. It's something that has overtaken my heart and soul. After a trip to Kenya, where I went to see wild elephants and meet some of my conservationist heroes, I returned to Northern California, asking, "What can I do to help?" So I began writing.

My intention for Sacred Elephants is to raise awareness about elephant conservation by touching your heart, enlightening your mind, and trumpeting a call out to your elephant-loving spirit.

I'm also looking for opportunities to work with other elephant philanthropists for events, travel/tourism, corporate social responsiblity ventures, and media productions. I also accept requests to review elephant books, DVD's, and other products.

Thank you for reading and helping to save our elephant friends!
