Urge Canada to ban the elephant ivory trade now!
In the past century alone, the African elephant population has declined by a staggering 96 percent, and is at risk of being eradicated within a few decades.
The decline of African elephants is largely driven by poaching to fill global demand for elephant ivory. Accordingly, nations all over the world are taking urgent action to close the remaining legal markets for elephant ivory.
The Canadian government has launched a public consultation to gather feedback on appropriate measures to restrict the elephant ivory trade in Canada. The responses to the consultation will determine whether or not Canada moves ahead with a ban.
