Research shows that most illegally-poached African elephant ivory can be traced back to just two areas of Africa. Scientists were able to locate the hotspots by matching the DNA fingerprint of seized ivory to DNA profiles from the dung of elephants living throughout the continent. Around 50,000 elephants are thought to be poached each year. The worst area for poaching was identified as Tanzania and nearby parts of Mozambique. This week, the US government hopes to send out a message against the illicit sale of elephant ivory by destroying one tonne of elephant ivory in New York's Times Square.
