Britain bans ivory sales and sends soldiers to SA to combat poaching

Ms Theresa May, prime minister of Britain.

NO ivory will be sold in Britain and soldiers are sent to Southern Africa to assist in breaking the hold poachers have on the region’s wildlife and specifically, rhinos.

Prime minister Teresa May said 24 troops will be in Malawi next month to train rangers in counter-insurgency tactics as those used in the Afghanistan and Iraqi wars.

The country is committed to “rid the world of this evil” which is seen as a threat to the planet’s future.

Previous assistance was in regard to saving tuskers and May made it clear that no ivory will be traded in Britain no matter the age.
