A member of the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) anti-poaching squad is pictured during a patrol in serach of poachers and displaced elephants through the Kora National Park on January 30, 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.
