Ivory to be crushed in Central Park to raise awareness for elephant poaching, advocates say

More than 1 ton of ivory tusks and trinkets will be destroyed in a rock crusher in Manhattan’s Central Park on Thursday to bring awareness to elephant poaching, advocates said.An estimated 96 elephants are killed for their ivory tusks every day in Africa, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society, which organized Thursday’s event with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.“The event will send the world a clear message that the U.S. will not tolerate wildlife crime that threatens the extinction of Africa’s elephants,” the agencies said in a statement.

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.

How The Ivory Supply Chain Impacts Us All.

Author Geoffrey Wells talks about how the more than 30,000 elephants that die every year has become the 4th largest illegal business in the world.

He connects the dots between cyber criminals, ivory traffickers and, yes,

our own complicity that creates platforms for international terror groups.

He will also read from his thriller, Atone for the Ivory Cloud.
