Stop all legal ivory trading and elephant poaching

some areas of Africa And China reported the highest level of poaching rates ever recorded. Researchers estimate that 38,000 elephants are killed every year to supply the illegal ivory trade. That is, one elephant killed every 15 minutes. Unfortunately, the market offers significant reward to poachers; ivory can sell for as much as $1,100 a kilogram in China (Save The Elephants 2015 China Report). Poachers make $200 per kilogram of ivory meaning that even a small pair of tusks can net a poacher more money than he would otherwise make in an entire year. If this trend continues, elephants could become extinct within 15 years.
