Three tonnes of illegal ivory are displayed on February 6, 2014 in front of the Eiffel tower in Paris. France fired the latest volley in the world’s uphill battle against African elephant poaching, crushing three tonnes of illegal ivory at the foot of the Eiffel Tower and urging others to follow suit. The contraband with an estimated street value of 1 million euros ($1.4 million) was fed into a machine and ground, with the powder to be carted off and incinerated.
