Demand Tanzania Destroy World's Largest Ivory Stockpile & Ban Ivory Trade

  • by: Judy Brey
  • recipient: Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete, African Union, CITES

The world's largest Ivory stockpile is at risk of being trafficked into Asia as International Crime Sydicates pay top dollar to corrupt government officials, criminal kingpins in Africa and others who have access to the stockpile to traffic the Ivory out of Africa. During a state visit by the President of China, Ivory was loaded onto the President's plane enroute back to China according to the Environmental Investigation Agency.

Report on Chinese STATE VISIT AND IVORY BUYING SPREE:

All Ivory stockpiles need to be destroyed, carving factories closed and Ivory banned permanently worldwide or the African elephant species will become extinct In the near future. This stockpile needs to be destroyed to send the message that the trade in ivory is ended. This action, ban and message is imperative to end the slaughter of more elephants. The world is watching and we demand action now.
