Hong Kong Votes to Ban Ivory Trade
Hong Kong’s legislature has voted to completely end the city’s ivory trade by 2021, weeks after the Chinese mainland’s ban took effect in January.
The special administrative region’s Legislative Council agreed Wednesday on a three-stage plan to shut down the local ivory trade and toughen regulations on the import and export of ivory.
A ban on the import and re-export of elephant trophies — animal parts collected by recreational hunters — will be in place immediately after the law comes into effect.
