Thailand Announces End to Ivory Trade
Today is a brighter day for the world’s elephants.
With support from WWF Board Member Leonardo DiCaprio, the campaigning group Avaaz.org and all of you, we helped secure a commitment from Thailand’s prime minister to end the trade of ivory in Thailand.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra stood before a crowded hall of delegates attending an international wildlife trade meeting and told the world that she would take steps to end the ivory trade in her country. This commitment would close a major global loophole that contributes to tens of thousands of elephant deaths every year.
It was a decision that did not come easily, and would not have happened if not for you. You were part of a 1.4 million-strong petition urging her to stand up for elephants and ban Thai ivory trade.
This is an enormous step forward in the fight to stop wildlife crime.
Thank you for all you do to support conservation.
