Every year, up to 25,000 elephants and 1,300 rhinos die at the hands of poachers in Africa, and thousands more are killed by trophy hunters. Elephants and rhinoceros could be extinct within our lifetimes if urgent action is not taken to save them.
Canada is on the verge of enacting some of the strongest trade-related protections for elephants and rhinos in the world. The proposed regulations would ban elephant ivory and rhino horn trade in Canada, along with imports of hunting trophies made from these parts.
To enact these critical protections for elephants and rhinos, Canada has launched a consultation seeking widespread approval of the proposed regulations.
