Media coverage ivory trade and poaching

Twenty years after the international trade in ivory was banned, many of you have read that there is a new boom in the killing of elephants for their tusks. This development is a critical threat to the future of elephants, and we and many others work hard to try to convince CITES that they should reject proposals from Tanzania and Zambia that we believe will further stimulate the trade in ivory and poaching.

We continue to update links to global media coverage related to the ivory trade and poaching on ElephantVoices, and you will also find updates and comments on ElephantVoices on Facebook.
