Ask U.S. to Help End the Illegal Ivory Trade

Recently, two New York jewelers were forced to pay $55,000 in fines and forfeit over $2 million dollars of illegal ivory trinkets when they were caught by an off-duty wildlife inspector. While this looks like a huge blow to the illegal ivory trade, it is only the tip of the iceberg. The jewelers were caught by accident, and had been selling ivory out in the open, despite New York’s strict ivory laws.
