Support an ivory and rhino horn ban in your state today!
The illegal wildlife trade is a multi-billion dollar business and the fourth most lucrative transnational crime after drugs, weapons and human trafficking. The DOJ, FBI, NIA, CIA and ICE-HSI recognize the seriousness of wildlife trafficking and that the United States is a source, transit and destination country. While the federal government has banned most international imports and exports of elephant ivory, as well as interstate trade, ivory continues to be sold within 41 U.S. states. Hover over an individual state on the map below to view its current legislative status on ivory and rhino horn trade. If legislation has yet to pass, please contact your State Senator and Assembly member and send a letter in support of ending intrastate trade and toughening wildlife trafficking penalties within your state.
