The U.K. is failing elephants!

The Guardian features an enlightening article from Nicky Campbell, titled ‘Ivory is not beautiful, it’s barbaric’, which delves into the complete shortcomings of a proposed ivory ban in the U.K.

The UK is the largest exporter of ivory in the EU, ivory is traded within our borders, and investigations into the UK ivory trade have repeatedly revealed illegal ivory items being passed off as legal. Even the planned partial ban on ivory sales – which is still being debated – would not cover items produced before 1947.
