Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Despite the long ban on the international trade in ivory, an increase in world tourism to places like Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam is also showing a huge increase in people buying illegal ivory trinkets and bribing them out of the country. A Save the Elephants sponsored report on the state of wild elephants found as few as 85 in Vietnam, and says it's mainly the ivory which is causing the wildspread killing of elephants.
