Customs officials have smashed a global smuggling ring after they
discovered 12 tons of smuggled ivory worth £62million in China. 
The 3,188 pieces of elephant tusks were

found in Xiamen city and have an
estimated value of 603 million Yuan on the black market.  

Officials named one of the ‘masterminds’ as a Fujian native called Chen
who was known to customs since 2011 and operates between China and Africa for
his licensed ivory shop, according to the South China Morning Post.

It is believed Chen’s
gang are also responsible for smuggling shipments through Hong Kong where
illegal loads have been seized in recent months.
Several members of his group were also arrested and almost 2,000
kilograms of ivory was seized in August.

Three Chinese nationals
were arrested in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, on Tuesday after nearly 800 tusks
were found hidden in bags of garlic at their homes.
According to a recent survey by the International Fund for Animal
Welfare, 70 per cent of Chinese people did not know that elephants are killed
for ivory products. 
The survey revealed that most thought elephants lost tusks in the same way
humans lose teeth. 
China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at a news conference on
Tuesday that China was committed to working with the international community to
protect wildlife. 
The U.S. is the world’s second largest consumer of ivory products behind
China.
