Two Million Tusks

Two Million Tusks is an informal group of four individuals who are concerned about the plight of the elephant and the UK’s contribution to the global ivory trade.

They decided to research the amount of ivory being sold through UK auction houses and to test whether auctioneers are complying with the UK’s current ivory trade rules. The findings from their research are directly relevant to the Government’s consultation on proposed changes to the law (which, among other things, calls for evidence about the amount of ivory currently being sold in the UK).

EIA assisted the group by providing advice on how best to present the research in a concise, coherent and convincing way. The end result is a report containing very timely and important evidence for the Government to consider.

A reminder that everyone has until December 29 to take part in the Government consultation on UK ivory sales:
