Help Ban Ivory Sales throughout the U. S.
The Obama Administration’s announcement that it would ban ivory imports and sales in the U. S. was a big step on the way to protecting elephants. Now, six months later, poachers have killed 15,000 more elephants, and the ban is still not in place,
Wildlife Conservation Society: “Interest groups that value ivory sales over elephants’ lives have launched an all-out effort to weaken or eliminate any and all ivory bans. Right now there are bills in both the House and Senate that would not only kill a federal ban on ivory sales, but could effectively roll back any state efforts to ban ivory, including the recently enacted New Jersey State ivory ban.
“Each day we spend fighting these attacks means another 96 elephants are senselessly slaughtered. Tell your members of Congress to stand firm against any and all attacks on the federal ivory ban.”
