Ivory Wars intensifies as Kenya Spearheading the fight

Patrick Omondi, the Head of Species Conservation and Management at the Kenya Wildlife Service, will be testifying in front of the US  congress.  He is seeking US support for his government’s proposal for a 20 year moratorium on the sale of elephant ivory.  All this is happening in the gear up for the major CITES conference March 13-25 in which many major African poaching issues will be discussed.
