Good News from China

elephants

In a world where we get resigned to hearing bad news about the plight of the animal kingdom we have some good news from China today where Chinese ivory factories will close their doors and be shut down by the Chinese Government and all retail outlets will close by the end of this year.

This is a major step to stopping the appalling trade in ivory and the ivory trade in China seems to be collapsing as wholesale prices for a pair of tusks has fallen from an average of $2100 in early 2014 to $714 last month and this is in major part to the actions of the Chinese Government.

In a year when the new US President seems to be “taking aim” at animal welfare protection legislation and there is great uncertainty in the UK about animal legislation post leaving the European Union at least one major country seems to be taking some positive action for wildlife and deserves our support in this matter.
