Elephants Are On The Brink Of Extinction
And Massachusetts Plays Big Role In Their Future
Ivory sales are still legal in Massachusetts, despite being banned internationally in 1989 and nationally in 2016. A 2017 report on the ivory market highlighted the Boston area because of its many antique stores and markets.
We encourage you to petition your State Senator and State Representative to enact two pending pieces of legislation: Senate Bill S.576/ House Bill H.903 to prohibit the sale of ivory and rhino horn in Massachusetts, and Senate Bill S.2251/House Bill H.3376 to ban the use of elephants and exotic animals in traveling exhibits and shows.
