An elephant skeleton minus its tusks is pictured in Kora National Park on January 29, 2013. Wildlife protection groups have expressed concern that the amount of elephant poaching in the African continent is now at its highest for 20 years with an estimated 25,000 elephants killed in 2011. Kenya's worst incident of ivory poaching in recent history took place on January 5, 2013 when an entire family of 11 elephants were killed by poachers in Tsavo National Park, which is home to some 13,000 elephants. Increasing prosperity in China, and a large influx of Chinese workers and investors throughout Africa, has sent demand for African ivory soaring.
