Dedicated to elephant well-being & ending the ivory trade world-wide!
The measure, introduced in the State Assembly by freshman lawmaker Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, mandates a FULL state ban on all ivory and rhino horn sales! Thank you Mark Deeble for sharing with us an incredible photograph of the late great bull elephant Satao, the largest tusker in Kenya, who was killed on May 30, 2014, for his ivory. We carried his memory in Trenton.
