Operation Uncovers Illegal Rhino Horn and Ivory Trade

Published 05/20/10

A coordinated operation undertaken by INTERPOL and supported by Born Free Foundation has resulted in the closure of an illegal ivory factory in Africa and the confiscation of hundreds of kilos of elephant ivory and rhino horn. The sting, dubbed “Operation Mogatle” in honor of the late assistant director of the Botswana Department of Wildlife and National Parks, was the third coordinated effort of its kind in the past three years.
