Ivory Ban

Thankyou to those of you who signed the various petitions advertised on our website against dropping the Elephant Ivory Ban.

At the March meeting of all CITES members in Doha, the application by Tanzania and Zambia to suspend the 21 year old moratorium was turned down for fears that any sales would fuel the illegal sale of ivory.

A resounding victory for elephant conservationists, although Tanzania have announced that they will appeal.
