The time for action against illegal wildlife trade in Africa is now, the UN Environment (UNEP) Africa Director has said.

Angola is the host of this year's World Environment Day celebrations observed annually on 5 June.

The country has been seeking to restore its elephant herds and has launched a string of initiatives to enhance conservation and stiffen law enforcement.

All while continuing to rebuild after more than a quarter century of civil war.

Eleuterio Guevane asked UNEP's Julliete Koudenoukpo how she felt about having the event held on African soil.
