The question for this weeks Free Ivory Friday is.... Why won't bans on the sale of ivory in the U.S. help stop poaching in Africa. You get extra points if you give an example of other bans that do not work. What have we banned in the U.S. that China has not followed our example and also banned.
The US is not that large of an importer/user of new Ivory, other bans that don't work are whaling, what with Japans "research", as well as the ban on the usage of lead in paints and stuff like that, seeing as how every once in a while we get toys imported from China with lead paint on them.
Does that mean I'm in? I also got an answer to the email I sent to my congressman, but it was just a form letter saying that I could expect a response in the next few weeks.
its kinda mean to kill an elephant just for the ivory.
