IFAW Unveils African Ambassador For The Ivory Trade Ban Campaign

Publication Date: 
Fri, 05/18/2007
Kenya and Mali have proposed a 20-year moratorium on ivory trade arguing that one-off ivory sales in select countries opens up markets, both legal and illegal, and lures poachers. “It would be suicidal to allow a new one-off sale or annual quota of ivory, as proposed by Southern African countries, while levels of illegal trade and poaching remain such serious threats to elephants across Africa and Asia as they are now,” said Dzoro.
