In this image released on Thursday, May 22, 2014, seized ivory tusks on display before incineration. On May 15, 2014, the government of Hong Kong held a ceremony to begin destruction of the city’s 29.6 metric tons of confiscated ivory. Humane Society International commended the action, which followed the city’s announcement made in January to destroy its stockpile. (Brent Ng / AP Images for Humane Society International) less
