The US Government today called on the international community to destroy all stocks of illegal and confiscated elephant ivory.

The US will be destroying its own ivory stockpile on October 8, 2013, as a powerful symbol that ivory trinkets have no value and are leading to the unprecedented slaughter of elephants.

“An elephant loses its life to poaching, on average, every 15-minutes,” said Jeff Flocken, Director IFAW North America (International Fund for Animal Welfare – www.ifaw.org).
