Behind every piece of ivory is a dead elephant. Any purchases or sales of ivory only fuel the current poaching crisis.
On Friday, June 19, the United States government crushed one ton of ivory. The ivory that was destroyed was comprised of full and carved tusks and hundreds of ivory trinkets that was seized from a single store in Philadelphia in 2009. Crushing ivory ensures that stockpiles of seized ivory will never again be sold.
We must put an end to the senseless killing of wild elephants.
Tell US Fish and Wildlife Service it is the right decision to save wild elephants.
