A British campaigner and investigator of the ivory trade has been found dead at his home in Kenya, the BBC reports.

Esmond Bradley Martin, 75, was found with a stab wound to his neck at home in the capital, Nairobi.

Bradley Martin had spent decades working to photograph and document the illegal sales of ivory and rhino horn, often putting himself in danger.

China implemented a ban on the ivory trade at the start of 2018. However, the U.K. is the world’s largest trader of legal ivory, but has promised to ban the sale of the substance.
