Hong Kong Is Phasing Out Ivory Sales And Are Clamping Down On The Hunting Of Elephants
Elephants are at a huge risk of extinction due to many dickheads who insist on hunting them for their tusks and ivory. Apparently around 30,000 elephants are killed every year.
However, animal rights activists in Hong Kong, the world's largest retail market for ivory, are clamping down the sale of the product in order to try and save the species.
According to CNN, Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, Hong Kong's leader, has vowed to phase out the trade and bring in stronger penalties to those who try to illegally trade endangered animals.
This is a huge win for animal rights activists of WildAid Hong Kong who told CNN they were 'absolutely delighted' with the news.
Why would anyone want to kill elephants? Look at how cute this one is!
