Between September and November 2012, illegal ivory coming from East Africa was stopped by customs in Hong Kong. Over 1,500 tusks were confiscated. This means that over 750 elephants were killed only for those two shipments. Mr Lam, Head of Hong Kong Ports and Maritime Command, Customs & Excise Department, was very kind to invite children and Boopy, the eco-detective orange sparrow, to witness this sad reality and encourage wildlife conservation around the world.
  I would like to thank HK Customs for their great cooperation.
