Speak up for a global ivory ban

All ivory markets are a threat to elephants. Shutting them down is essential if we are to stop the killing.

The upcoming CITES Conference of the Parties is a big opportunity. It's a treaty meeting of 182 governments to decide regulations around wildlife trade.

Tell the U.S. Delegation to CITES to be a strong voice in support of a global ivory ban.
