Tens of thousands of elephants are slaughtered each year for the ivory trade. Among others, loopholes that allow a legal ivory trade are responsible for this. The European Union and its member states still allow commercial ivory trade.

Translation...

Tens of thousands of elephants are slaughtered each year for the ivory trade. Among others, loopholes that allow a legal ivory trade are responsible for this. The European Union and its member states still allow commercial ivory trade.

In the EU, the sale, as well as the import and export of ivory from alleged old stock are legal. Ivory is offered open at auctions, in stores and on the internet. Some EU companies have even specialized in the purchase and export of ivory to Asia: more than 7 tons of ivory and over 12,000 ivory carvings have been imported by Hong Kong in the last two years alone. This criminal trade allows illegal ivory to be infiltrated by poached elephants. He fuels demand and poaching.

The international community has now passed resolutions at two important conferences calling on all governments to close their national ivory markets. So far, however, the EU does not comply with this demand and undermines the worldwide effort to save the elephants.

Please support our demand to ban ivory trade to and from the EU. Only when sales and demand are stopped will poaching finally come to an end
