2013 2013 2013 U.S. Department of the Interior:<br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to crush and destroy approximately six tons of elephant ivory seized by its special agents and wildlife inspectors for violations of U.S. wildlife laws. The ivory "crush" is part of a series of upcoming coordinated actions that will spotlight the rising tide of poaching and trafficking that is threatening wild populations of elephants, rhinoceroses and other iconic species — and strengthen global efforts to crack down on these criminal activities. <br /><br />"Rising demand for ivory is fueling a renewed and horrific slaughter of elephants in Africa, threatening remaining populations across the continent," U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell said. "We will continue to work aggressively with the Departments of Justice and State, as well as with international law enforcement agencies, to disrupt and prosecute criminals who traffic in ivory, and we encourage other nations to join us in that effort."<br /><br />The service plans to destroy the confiscated ivory, which is being held in secure storage at the agency’s National Wildlife Property Repository near Denver, Colorado, on October 8, 2013. The material will include raw and carved whole tusks, smaller carvings, and other elephant ivory items abandoned or forfeited to the service as a result of its criminal investigations in the United States and overseas, as well as its anti-smuggling efforts at the nation’s ports of entry over the past 25 years.</blockquote><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br>U.S. Department of the Interior:<br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to crush and destroy approximately six tons of elephant ivory seized by its special agents and wildlife inspectors for violations of U.S. wildlife laws.
