In this Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013 photo, elephant tusks are displayed after being confiscated by the Customs in Hong Kong. The latest shipment, 189 tusks worth $1.5 million hidden in soybean sacks in a shipping container, was one of four major busts this year. Ivory is known as “white gold” because of the rich prices it commands on the black market. Hong Kong has put values of between $1,000 and $2,000 a kilogram on ivory it seized this year.
