Elephant Listening Project thanks China for ivory trade ban
The Elephant Listening Project thanks China for their commitment to eliminate the commercial trade in ivory by the end of 2017
The Elephant Listening Project (ELP) is a non-profit research venture using vocal activity to monitor the status and activities of elephants.
Following China’s promise that it will stop domestic trade in ivory by the end of 2017, ELP have made a video thanking China for their commitment. Their belief is that if the bottom drops out of the market, the incentives to kill elephants will drop too.
