New York:  Action Needed:  Help Us Ban the Ivory Trade in New York!

 

The elephant poaching crisis has become increasingly severe over the past several years, and we need your help to work toward a solution. It is estimated that 35,000 – maybe as many as 50,000 – elephants are poached annually. Unfortunately, the U.S. is the second largest ivory market in the world, and New York is the largest ivory market in the U.S., so we must reduce the demand here for “white gold.”

Fortunately, Assemblyman Sweeney (D-11) has introduced A. 8824, which would ban the sale of ivory in New York. It would also increase the penalties for offenses involving high-valued animal parts, thereby ensuring harsh punishments for those engaging in the bloody ivory trade. We need your help to make sure that this bill passes!  Please write to your assemblymember today, asking them to support this crucial legislation.
