Washington, D.C. -- Born Free USA, a global leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation, applauds Representative Peter DeFazio (D-OR) for introducing a bill today that will enhance America’s ability to deter nations from allowing ivory trade to flourish. The Targeted Use of Sanctions for Killing Elephants in their Range (TUSKER) Act will require certain nations to work with the U.S. on anti-poaching efforts, or face sanctions if they fail to cooperate. Illegal trafficking in ivory is directly responsible for shocking declines in elephant populations in recent years, and this bill is a crucial step toward reducing the threat to elephants on the ground.
