Montana's ivory and rhino horn ban SB 221

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.
 
On February 14th, 2019, senator Mike Phillips introduced Senate Bill 221, prohibiting the sale or purchase of elephant ivory, rhino horn, and rhino horn products within the state of Montana. Unfortunately, the bill was narrowly defeated 26-24 in the State Senate on February 21, 2019. In order for a similar bill to be reintroduced, Montana representatives need to know that this is important to the citizens of Montana. Please contact your representatives today!
