CITES Crisis : Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species

Elephant Crisis in 2002

 

Trunk Full of Tales

 

Elephants faced their biggest threat in 10 years, because the upcoming CITES meeting in November promised to possibly lead to more ivory sales. The elephant decline started again after the 1989 ban in 1997 with the relaxation of the Ivory trade ban; poaching across Africa has increased. Illegal poaching and smuggling has continued to rise since the CITES 2000 decision, and will continue as there is even more hope that the markets will reopen in the coming years.
