The Lusaka Agreement Task Force (LATF) working together with the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) has managed to recover seven pieces of elephant tusks along the Kenya-Somalia border. The recovery involved a joint operation that took place between 3rd and 8th August 2009. This followed intelligence reports that indicated intensive smuggling of ivory trophies in the area. The operation has also enabled further collection of intelligence regarding the illegal activities of wildlife traffickers in the region.
