ivory trade in hong kong

blog_illl233-22

25年前香港已禁止進出口象牙,但仍可買賣立法前製造的象牙製品。因為中國已禁止銷售象牙製品,所以九成香港售出的象牙產品都被走私到中國大陸,而且情況非常嚴重。很多製品冒充20多年前的象牙,有些更冒充已絕種3000多年的長毛象牙。結果香港成為了全球銷售最多象牙的城市。

hong kong government banned the import and export of ivory 25 years ago, but trading of ivory that was registered before the ban is still legal. china banned all sales of ivory, so visitors from mainland china would come to hong kong for ivory and then illegally smuggled to china. many of the ivory are being passed off as old ivory or even from the extinct mammoth. hong kong is the city with the most ivory trade in the world.
