Meet me at the ivory crush in Central Park
Ivory to be crushed in Central Park to raise awareness for elephant poaching, advocates say
The ivory tusks and trinkets, including statues and jewelry, were confiscated by the DEC and federal authorities. They will be crushed starting at 10:30 a.m. Thursday between Sheep Meadow and the Naumburg Bandshell, organizers said.
New York restricted the sale of ivory in 2014, only allowing those with specific permits to sell it legally.
