China’s Ivory Timeline a potential game-changer for Elephants

News Hour:

China will close its domestic ivory market by December 2017, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) issued the following statement from Carter Roberts, president and CEO:

“China’s announcement is a game changer for elephant conservation. The large-scale trade of ivory now faces its twilight years, and the future is brighter for wild elephants. With the US also ending its domestic ivory trade earlier this year, two of the largest ivory markets have taken action that will reverberate around the world.”

Declaración de Carter Roberts, Presidente y CEO de WWF, en relación al anuncio de China comprometiéndose a cerrar el comercio doméstico de marfil de elefantes a partir de Diciembre del 2017:

“El anuncio de China dará un impulso sin precedente a los esfuerzos de conservación de elefantes. El comercio de marfil de elefantes a gran escala está cerca de desaparecer; esto significa un mejor futuro para los elefantes. Si a esto añadimos que también Estados Unidos puso fin al comercio doméstico de marfil de elefantes a principios de 2016, estamos hablando del cierre de los dos mercados más grandes, lo que tendrá un gran eco alrededor del mundo”.
