Saturday 30th April 2016, the government of Kenya took a historic stand against ivory trade. 105 tons of ivory arranged in eleven pyres and one pyre of rhino horns were set ablaze in the Worth More Alive campaign. The tusks of about 6000 elephants were lit by President Uhuru Kenyatta as he urged member states of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES)   to impose a total ban on ivory trade. In his speech, he emphasized that the only value of ivory was on the elephants. Kenya is home to the last Male Northern White Rhino and national policies have been put in place to ensure poaching is curtailed.
