A man shouts during a protest ON January 22, 2012 in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi with the word's 'Blood Ivory' painted across his face when affiliates of an amorphous activist group called Kenyans United Against Poaching took to the streets to put pressure on the government to declare the ongoing rampant poaching of particulalrly rhino and elephant , now at recently unprecendented levels, a national disaster. According to a recent report by the International Fund for Animal Welfare, IFAW, last year, -- 2012-- stands out as the annus horriblis [Latin for 'year of horrors'] for the World's largest land mammal with statistics standing at 34 tonnes of poached ivory having been seized, marking the biggest ever total of confiscated ivory in a single year, in the 24 years since detailed records began, outstripping by almost 40 per cent last year’s record of 24.3 tonnes.
