IVORY TRADE BAN IN AMERICA AND CHINA

WASHINGTON (Sept. 25, 2015) — In a historic accord to save Africa’s elephants from a poaching crisis killing 33,000 elephants annually, President Barack Obama and President Xi Jinping agreed Friday to end commercial ivory sales in the United States and China.

The United States and China commit to enact nearly complete bans on ivory import and export, including significant and timely restrictions on the import of ivory as hunting trophies, and to take significant and timely steps to halt the domestic commercial trade of ivory.  The two sides decided to further cooperate in joint training, technical exchanges, information sharing, and public education on combating wildlife trafficking, and enhance international law enforcement cooperation in this field. The United States and China decided to cooperate with other nations in a comprehensive effort to combat wildlife trafficking.



FINALLY! HOPE FOR ELEPHANTS AT LAST. NOW LETS MAKE SURE WORDS BECOME DEEDS AND THIS EVIL TRADE IS STAMPED OUT FOR EVER.
