World's Biggest Ivory Market Shutting Down—What It Means:
Today (31/3) China closes the first of its state-licensed ivory carving factories and retailers, a move conservationists hail as a big step toward saving elephants from extinction. Today one of the world’s largest domestic markets for elephant ivory begins to wind down. China is closing 67 of its licensed ivory facilities, including 12 of its 35 ivory carving factories and several dozen of its more than 130 ivory retailers, according to a notice from the country’s State Forestry Administration, which oversees wildlife trade issues. The rest will be closed before the end of the year. The international trade in ivory has been banned since 1990, but many countries, including the China and United States, have continued to allow domestic sales of ivory.

2016 was an amazing year for VETPAW. We were on the ground both assisting and training the Rangers to protect the majestic animals of Africa from poachers.
Our Veterans utilize the skills they learned in the military to optimize the efforts of those brave Rangers.
We need your help to expand VETPAW's force in the field and to keep boots on the ground in 2017. Please Click our DONATE Button on our FB page or visit our website to make a kind donation.
Thank you so very much! #elephant #rhino #rangers #notoivory #nopoaching

Due to civil unrest and escalating poaching in some neighbouring African countries, Botswana has seen thousands coming in and currently has the highest population (over a 130,000) of elephants in the continent.

@Regranned from @96elephants - As of now, the United Kingdom still allows a significant domestic ‘legal’ ivory market. But the country has just launched a limited public comment period on a proposed ivory ban. "This is a critical step in joining other nations to reverse the precipitous decline of African elephants," said @TheWCS President and CEO Cristián Samper. You can let them know that you support this move. Add your comment via the link in our bio.

@Regrann from @bambilicious06 - PINNAWALA orphanage in Sri Lanka, is supposed to be a caring place for Elephants. Once you have paid, you are hurried over to some Elephants standing, many of them chained, their handlers push you to pose with the Animals for extra money. When asked why the Elephants are chained so tightly, you are told it's to "stop them killing the smaller ones", and they are "not kept chained up for longer than six months"! Many act deeply distressed and cannot move, described as "harrowing to see". Next to the Pinnawala river front, is where the Elephants are fetched to bathe (which has become increasingly popular to see in Sri Lanka). The handlers bring down some of the Elephants and actually chain them in the middle of the river. Underneath a thin layer of water is a mountain of chains, holding a vast proportion of the elephants in place. They literally can't move. Several are even forced to lie down in the water and are threatened and hit once they try to stand up, which is even denying them what Elephants love to do-playing in water. This is all done before most of the visitors arrive, as the handlers don't want tourists seeing the chains! This place has been described as a "battery farm for Elephants"! Anyone visiting Sri Lanka, take in the sights, marvel at the history and temples, have a great time, but PLEASE DO NOT PAY to interact with the Elephants at Pinnawala, your money pays for their horrifying abuse and chains! Hiding behind pics on Instagram of the Elephants in Pinnawala River, is a pretty dark culture of economic greed, cruelty and animal abuse. Please think twice before visiting or liking an Instagram picture of this awful place, but most of all – do your research before you visit any Animal attraction! Again another severe case of animal exploitation at its worst! Shame on the @telegraph Newspaper for including the Pinnawala in their package holiday!! #boycottpinnawala #notoanimalexploitation #saveelephants #notoivory #pinnawalaelephantorphanage #telegraphnewspaper - #regrann

Mundi was one of 63 baby elephants slated for government slaughter, who were airlifted to the U.S. from Zimbabwe in 1984 in what was known as the "Jumbolair Project". After three years performing with a small Puerto Rico circus, Mundi was transferred to the struggling Peurto Rico zoo, where she has lived since 1988. This zoo has been flagged for dozens of violations by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and an Elephant and 10 felines were being moved because of "concerns". It has now been announced that MUNDI will retire to sanctuary at the new Elephant Refuge in North America! @elephantaidinternational, say the cost of moving Mundi is approx $30,000, and I believe they are still accepting donations for her move. This beautiful girl more than deserves her life in a Sanctuary, and even though she is blind in one eye, she will be able to have some freedom to roam, and possibly interact with other Elephants, which she hasn't done for so many many years. In a forward thinking move, Puerto Rico’s government made the decision to retire Mundi to ERNA (elephant refuge north america) who are to be applauded for putting Mundi’s needs first. I look forward to seeing Mundi in her new home, where she can really "start living", and to all those responsible for her "rescue" and move - thank you 👏👏👏

#Africa loses 8 percent of its #elephants every year to #poaching. We have to say no more, NO country should deal in Ivory, it's a savage barbaric trade!! #30DaysOfGreen #notoivory #saveelephants

I've been marching the Global March for Elepants and Rhino's for the last 4 years. Now it coincided with a workshop making murals. I made an elephant to draw the attention of my fellow workshoppers to their plight.

Apparently here in the UK, the Ivory Ban is to be reinstated, I am sceptical of this as it should NEVER have been lifted in the first place!! Our Government have been "shamed" into this decision, "shamed" was not my first thought, it was a disgusting, despicable, and bloody uncivilised sneaky decision!
"The proposed ban does suggest a number of exceptions for antique ivory items, including musical instruments, items of significant cultural value and those containing only a small amount of ivory, which the government says do not contribute to the poaching of elephants".??? Anything made out of Ivory, should have zero value, old or new, but if these "antique" items have to be excepted, then they should be placed in a museum! While Ivory is still being traded for obscene amounts of money, then there will always be vile opportunists ready to commit vile acts to line their pockets with dirty blood money, as we are aware from Elephants poaching numbers. Apparently,
these plans will put "the UK front and centre of global efforts to end the insidious trade in ivory". But I won't easily forget, that while this decision is the right one, the ban was so easily lifted by our PM for her pals- the President of the Antique Dealers, and it's members! #notoivory #savetheelephant

The earth is large enough for all to share, but mankind's heart is not large enough to care. How anyone can harm innocent animals is beyond me! #notoivory #innocentanimals #notoivorytrade #elephants #elephantphotography #babyelephant #loveanimals #elephantinstagram #lovemankind #lovequotes #mankindquotes #lifequotes #spreadlove 💕

Our team has been quietly working in the background. Visiting new lodges, exploring new areas and getting involved in important projects in Kenya.
Spending time with the anti-poaching teams in Tsavo East and with orphaned elephants in Nairobi with @dswt. We have cherished our special time on this journey.
