Tell the EU close the loophole, ban the ivory trade – NOW! - Rainforest Rescue

Tell the EU to ban the ivory trade – NOW! - Rainforest Rescue

Poached elephant in Virunga National ParkThe EU sees itself as a conservation leader, yet it has a blind spot for the ivory business. The trade in “antique” ivory remains legal in the EU – a convenient loophole to launder tons of freshly poached tusks and export them to Asia. Tell the EU to kill the trade – before the trade kills the last elephants!

To: the European Commission and governments of the Member States
Ban the ivory trade completely in the EU. Poaching will not stop until the market for ivory has been eradicated.
