The declaration binds 46 countries with an obligation to maintain the ban on ivory trade and to opt out of the use of products made from species on the verge of extinction.

The laws of these countries must be amended to classify poaching and illegal animal trade as serious crimes
Such great news and I pray it will help!! I am surprised to see Russia on the list. Thanks Cher.
