Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

DENVER, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The U.S. government's movement to destroy nearly six tons of African and Asian elephant ivory conveys a powerful message about the urgent need to end illegal trafficking of parts of already imperiled species. The U.S. refuses to tolerate the toll ivory trafficking is taking on elephant populations, as well as the other threats to global and national security that arise in connection with wildlife crime. IFAW applauds this symbolic action and hopes that the next development toward ending the illegal ivory trade will be a full ivory moratorium in the U.S."
