Nice ivory carvings you have there … | Gristmill: The environmental news blog | Grist
As you may recall, it is illegal to trade in ivory. The fact that elephants are still being slaughtered is all the evidence you need to know that someone is paying for it. Did you know that there are 10,000 businesses in Japan that legally sell and manufacture goods made from “legally obtained” ivory? Now isn’t that interesting?

    It’s so bad they’ve had to resort to removing the tusks surgically to save their lives. That’s horrible.
    If there was some way to know the age of ivory more teeth could be put in laws against ivory trade I imagine.
