eBay partners with IFAW in honor of its 10-year anniversary on the global ban of ivory sales

In the Press | 23 January 2019

"10 years ago this month, eBay introduced a global ban on ivory sales on our platform. Today, eBay joins with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to mark this anniversary and highlight our ongoing efforts to combat illegal wildlife trafficking online. Over these past 10 years, eBay has formed valuable partnerships with NGOs such as IFAW, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and TRAFFIC to help train our staff on how to recognize illegal wildlife listings, encourage the adoption of a standardized wildlife policy framework among several e-commerce and social media companies, and join with the broader tech industry to form the Coalition to End Wildlife Trafficking Online.
