Ivory Market in China - China Ivory Trade Survey Report

Ivory Market in China - China Ivory Trade Survey Report

China has historically been a significant destination for illicit trade in ivory and was identified as the single most important influence on the increasing trend in illegal trade in ivory since 19951. The problem of illegal ivory trade in China is exacerbated by its burgeoning economy, the increase in consumer power and the easier and freer assess to ivory in other elephant range countries in the free trade environment. This report looks into both the legal and illegal ivory trade in China, in the hopes of providing important information to support wildlife law enforcement and China's implementation of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora (CITES).
