Elephant hunting, which used to be an accepted activity in Kenya, was banned in 1973, as was the ivory trade. Illegal hunting continues, as there is still an international demand for elephant tusks. 

Kenya pioneered the destruction of ivory as a way to combat this black market. 

Elephant poaching continues to pose a threat to the population.
