End the Domestic Trade of Elephant Ivory in Canada
A staggering 20,000 African elephants are poached each year. Scientists anticipate they could be extinct in the wild within 20 years if illegal poaching isn’t controlled.
This is a global problem that requires bold action by countries around the world. Delegates from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) have asked all countries to ban their internal, domestic trade of ivory to save elephants. In the past Canada was 1 of only 4 countries to vote against this.
Countries that have implemented or scheduled an ivory ban include the several US states, China, France, UK, Netherlands, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Now it’s time for Canada to stand up for elephants.
