Conflict, Crime, and Corruption: The Illicit Brutality of the Ivory Trade

Published 04/30/14

Born Free USA’s CEO, Adam M. Roberts, discusses the war on ivory—and how the newly released report, “Ivory’s Curse: The Militarization and Professionalization of Poaching in Africa,” reveals complex networks behind the ivory trade. Roberts declares, “We will call upon global decision-makers to uniformly prohibit the trade in ivory to once again dry up the marketplace. We will encourage targeted action in each of the poaching and trade hotspots we have identified to make sure the right approach is applied in the right place. And we will continue to identify the nefarious people working to doom elephants for their own greed.”
