A huge pile of ivory tusks has been burned in Kenya to raise awareness of the elephant poaching problem.
Hundreds of ivory tusks have been burned in Kenya to raise awareness of the elephant poaching problem.
Here's Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki setting fire to a pile of more than 300 tusks in Tsavo National Park.
President Kibaki said: "We seek to firmly demonstrate to the world our determination to eliminate all forms of illegal trade in ivory."
This pile of ivory would make around £10million if sold.
There are about half a million elephants in Africa today. The continent's elephant population has more than halved since the 1970s.
Elephants are killed for their tusks because their ivory can be sold for loads of money to make things like jewellery and ornaments. It's still happening despite a global ban on buying and selling ivory.
