Muslims Slaughter 38,000 Elephants in Just One Year    Bookmark and Share  

British troops have been deployed to save Kenya’s elephants being slaughtered by Muslims for their valuable tusks.

Al Shabaab, a group linked to Al Qaeda, is said to be funding their training and attacks by selling elephant and rhino horns on the Somalian black market – a trade worth £12billion (USD19 BN) a year.

The terrorist clan earns £400,000 (USD 635,000) a month in the trade – enough to pay their jihadists £75 (USD 120) a week, it was recently reported.

In the past year, 60 wardens and 38,000 elephants have been killed by illegal poachers.

In an initiative backed by Prince Charles and Prince William, 25 soldiers from 3rd Battalion Parachute Regiment have been sent to train Kenyan rangers.

The paratroopers, currently based 200 miles north of Nairobi, will spend the coming weeks teaching the Kenyan Wildlife Service, Kenyan Forestry Service and Mount Kenya Trust to patrol better, work more effectively as a team, and how to tackle poachers.

The Government has also arranged for a British prosecutor to also advise her Kenyan counterparts in a bid to cripple terrorist funding in North Africa and protect the endangered species.

Environment secretary Owen Paterson, who was in Kenya last week, said: ‘Illegal poaching is having a devastating effect on some of the world’s most iconic species.

‘By joining forces with those on the frontline in Kenya, our armed services will be able to provide training and support to the courageous people who put their lives on the line every day.’

Earlier this year, Prince William urged leaders to take on illegal poachers to ‘determine the fate of some of the world’s most captivating species.’

He said failure to do so would be ‘a catastrophe’.

Brigadier Duncan Francis, the UK’s defense attaché in Nairobi, said: ‘This is an excellent example of the British Army taking positive action on an issue close to many people’s hearts.

‘The 25 soldiers will be making an immense contribution to securing the future of some of the world’s most endangered species.’

As the price of ‘blood ivory’ – illegally poached tusks – soars in Africa, gangs have developed new techniques to slay animals, such as poisoning watering holes.

Al Shabaab is believed to be one of the key groups behind the increasing figures.
