Wildlife Conservation News: Government proposes ivory trade ban in victory for Duke of Cambridge

Government proposes ivory trade ban in victory for Duke of Cambridge

A ban on the sale of ivory in the UK is to be examined by the government, in a victory for  the Duke of Cambridge’s campaign to halt the trade in endangered wildlife.   

The proposed block on all would see the trade in all worked ivory, regardless of date, banned, with exceptions made for sales to and between museums, of musical instruments, of items containing only small amounts of ivory, and items of significant historical, cultural, or artistic value. 

The sale of raw tusks of any age is already illegal. Worked ivory items produced after 3 March 1947 can be sold with a certificate, with no restrictions at all on worked ivory produced before that date.

The proposed extension of the ban to cover "antique" ivory has been urged by conservationists because they say it is used by poachers as cover for laundering tusks from elephants killed on Africa.
