China was often accused of fueling demand
"probably because 1.4 billion people are Chinese
and it's a very big market."
USE RESIN INSTEAD-SAVE THE ELEPHANTS
Look at this SOB
Sorry to say I had an Ivory Bangle and a necklace
that was graduated beads, it was beautiful.
Also had two mink
coats. NO more..
I love the look of the Ivory tusks under a glass top table.
SO WHY NOT RESIN ? ? ?
China's surging economy has created millions
of wealthy consumers, many of whom are keen
to buy ivory carvings—seen as a status symbol for centuries.
Estimates that around 25,000 elephants were hunted for
ivory in 2011, and predicts an even higher toll for 2012.
There could be as few as 470,000 left.
This is pure Horror. She was someones Mother.
They are such smart and loving animals. I am
sick I owned that Ivory. DON"T BUY IVORY
IF YOU GO INTO A HOME JUST SAY HOW GROSS!
Maybe they will get the message that it is not a sign of
good taste or wealth .
Here you see DUMB and DUMBER,
imagine how dumb the parents are.
Better yet the Country.
