Improved ways to catch ivory poachers

New technology that uses extremely fine powders that help better generate finger prints to track ivory poachers was given to the International Fund for Animal Welfare in Vauxhall today.

IFAW will donate the kits to organisations round the world.

Foreign office minister Mark Field was on hand for the presentation of the finger print kits which can track ivory poachers up to 28 days after they touch tusks.

The kits were designed by the Metropolitan Police and King's College London, and it is thought it could help catch criminals here in the capital.
