Eleven huge bonfires with ivory from thousands of dead elephants will be burned at the savanna in the National Park in Nairobi. The purpose is to show resistance to the ivory trade.

The illegal trade makes so that elephants are endangered. On Saturday, Kenyan rangers will set fire to 105 tons of tusks - in the greatest ivory bonfire in history - in a symbolic act against the industry.

There is only one fundamental problem:

- Ivory does not burn, says pyro technician Robin Hollister, who is responsible for the fires.

- If you try to set it on fire with a match or by throwing it into a fire, it will not burn, he says.

Close to the eleven piles of tusks that are waiting at the savannah outside Kenya's capital, there is a tank with several thousand liters of fuel. A mixture of diesel and kerosene that will make the job easier, but it is expected to take several days to cremate the tusks.

When Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta sets fire to the biggest pile during Saturday's session, a strong message is sent. On the black market, 105 tons of ivory could be sold for almost $100 million.

- After all, it is a show, to be symbolic, says Hollister.
