ivory destruction in china

burn ivory


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.
