Elephants are threatened by habitat loss, conflict with humans, and ivory poaching.
IFAW is striving to reduce these disturbing trends.
Our presenter will discuss the various aspects that are a part of the ivory trade from its source to transit to consumption and how IFAW has been addressing these issues.
Come learn about the commodity that goes into trinkets, decorative items, and jewelry and how it has driven the species to the brink of extinctionand what YOU can do about it.
About the speaker:
IFAW conducts behavior change communication campaigns in key consumer countries. Through public outreach, IFAW educates consumers about the cruelty, conservation impacts and illegality of wildlife trade.
An independent study of an IFAW ivory demand reduction campaign in China showed that their customised, multi-pronged approach has been effective in reducing purchases of ivory products.Many ivory buyers are unaware of the cruelty and conservation impacts of poaching elephants. Through media partnerships in China, Germany, France, the UK, South Africa, the Netherlands and the US, IFAW has shared its animal welfare message with millions of travelers and potential consumers of ivory.
