ELEPHANT vs. MOUSE -- An Investigation of the Ivory Trade on Craigslist

ELEPHANT vs. MOUSE -- An Investigation of the Ivory Trade on Craigslist

As perhaps the major online platform for classified advertisements, Craigslist.org has made a name for itself as a site where buyers can find just about anything – whether that’s a used bicycle, rare book, or, as this report will show, an expensive ivory carving or elephant hide boots. We wanted to better understand the scope and scale of the ivory trade on Craigslist; if the site was currently a venue for trade in ivory and elephant parts, it could also be a potential partner in the fight to reverse the tide of poaching.
