ivory destruction in china

burn ivory

上星期中國國家林業局於廣東公開銷毀了6.1頓的收繳象牙,希望以此表示中國政府決心打擊非法野生動物的買賣,而這些象牙粉碎後將會用作展覽及教育。中國是全球最大的象牙市場,因需求日益增長,令走私情況更嚴重。希望這次的行動能提高大家的意識,盡快消除對象牙的需求。

Chinese Forestry and customs officials destroyed 6.1 tons of illegal ivory in Guangdong province; the action was to show the chinese government is concerned about the illegal wild animal trading. these crushed ivory would be used for exhibition and education. china is the largest ivory market worldwide, and as the demand of ivory grow, the trading problem is getting more serious. hopefully this ivory destruction could bring awareness and could prevent the horrible poaching.
