Vanishing Point – Criminality, Corruption and the Devastation of Tanzania’s Elephants

EIA's latest report, The Vanishing Point: Criminality, Corruption and the Devastation of Tanzania's Elephants, delves into how Tanzania’s elephants are once more being slaughtered in vast numbers to feed a resurgent ivory trade in China in an illegal trade driven by Chinese criminal syndicates and Tanzanian corruption. Vanishing Point reveals how some politicians from Tanzania’s ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) party and well-connected businesspeople use their influence to protect ivory traffickers. The video below provides an overview, complemented by firsthand accounts, of the corruption in Tanzania and the Chinese market providing an outlet for illegal poaching.
