Feisal Mohamed Ali
Ivory Kingpin Denied Bail

Suspected ivory trafficking ringleader Feisal Mohammed Ali was denied bail in Mombasa, Kenya, this month in the ongoing drama of his prosecution. The suspect had run from police and fled Kenya but then appeared on an Interpol list of the nine most wanted suspects linked to crimes against the environment. He was arrested by international police agents in Tanzania last month and extradited to face charges in the coastal city of Mombasa.

Tracking Elephants to protect Kenya's North 

January 2015 marks the start of a new push to protect the elephants of northern Kenya through GPS tracking of their movements in real-time.
