Key nodes were identified, with special emphasis on elephant, rhinoceros and tiger body parts. China was identified as the most frequently involved nation requiring information dissemination. The accompanying article from Time magazine singles out Kenya as being central to illegal elephant trade and China as being the nexus for the rhinoceros and tiger trade.
