A System of Extinction: The African Elephant Disaster

A ground-breaking ivory trade report which scrutinises key markets in Asia, the rampant poaching in African countries and exposes some of the international criminals who oversee the trade.

Those people who have opposed an international ban on the ivory trade have had their chance to demonstrate that it could be controlled. A million elephants have died in the meantime and a total ban on the ivory trade must be agreed and implemented as soon as possible.

The report played a key role in achieving the 1989 international ban on elephant ivory trade at CITES.
