Good news for elephants! Help stop the ivory trade.

Good news for elephants! Help stop the ivory trade.

Good news for elephants! AB 96 has officially been released by the Senate Appropriations committee and will move on to a full Senate vote this week!

In 1976, the State of California enacted a ban on the trade in elephant parts, including ivory. Unfortunately, due to an obscure loophole in that law, the trade continues here and California is the second largest market in the United States.

Every year approximately 35,000 elephants are killed for their ivory in Africa. That’s one elephant killed every 15 minutes. If the killing rate continues, African elephants will be extinct in the next few decades.

Luckily, we can take a huge and immediate leap forward right here in California, thanks to AB 96, a bill that is up for a vote in the Senate, which would ban most ivory and rhino horn sales.

Together we can stop the ivory trade in California, so please take action today!
