Our Works Help Stopping Illegal Poaching For Ivory
Deep disaster of elephants
Elephants is the largest terrestrial mammals that live in Asia and Africa. It is famous for its long nose and tusks.
But, the long nose and tusks also bring them deep disaster– illegal poaching.
Elephants get killed because of their long nose and ivory. Some reports show us there were over 10 million elephants were killed by illegal poaching last 50 years.
The illegal poaching mainly happened in Africa. Some of the witch doctors in African primitive tribes believe the elephants’ nose is medicine for some disaster. But, the most illegal poaching is aim to their ivory.
The ivory was thought as a raw materials for luxury crafts in thousands years. But, it turns to seriously threaten elephants survival was during about 100 years ago.
It originated from economic globalization, which led to the development of the ivory industry.
Trade chain of ivory crafts
On the trade chain of ivory crafts, South-east Asia countries and China is the processer, rifle-handed desperadoes in Africa is the raw material supplier while the riches all over the world are consumers.
People may want to support their families, either out of vanity or out of greed. But, no one is innocent in this criminal industrial chain.
As a Chinese I’m ashamed of the hurt those ivory processing workshops and dealers made for elephants. And I also deeply agreed with the ban on ivory sales made by our government.
A way to reduce the ivory trading
However, I think one thing is more important to destroy the trade chain of ivory—to greatly reduce the consumption of ivory.
But, how to reduce the consumption of ivory.
I think we should let people know the extremely serious disaster caused by their ivory consumption and their vanity on ivory is shameful.
To achieve this goal, educational theme exhibition is necessary. And it is necessary to display some realistic elephant model to organize a successful theme exhibition of elephants.
