On April 30, 2016, the largest ivory burn in history took place in Nairobi National Park. Eleven pyres—comprised of 105 tons of confiscated elephant tusks and 1.35 tons of rhinoceros horn—were set on fire as a clarion call to halt all trade in ivory. The street value of the pyres was estimated to be between 105 and 150 million dollars, representing between 6,000 and 7,000 elephants. This film captures this deeply symbolic and visceral message to the poaching and illegal trade syndicates, and bears witness to the loss of animal life and the diversity it embodied.
