The illegal hunt for Mammoth tusks in Siberia
This series of photographs really blew me away. I had no idea there was such a thing as hunting for Mammoth tusks for sale on the world market. These "hunters" go at it day and night and if the finds are good they can earn up to $100k for a week's work. It is also highly illegal and dangerous. It is also worth nothing that some of the tusks found do not get sold to collectors but get ground down for medicine in Asia. We're talking tusks over 10,000 years old here. Crazy.
