The end of the world's largest ivory market was announced today by the Chinese government. Domestic ivory sales will be banned by the end of 2017 with the first batch of factories and traders to close their business by March 2017. China's impending exit from the ivory trade is the greatest single step that could be taken to reduce poaching of elephants. We will continue to support their efforts through education and persuading consumers not to buy ivory. @wildaid #excellentnews 🏼
