IVORY’S CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE

 

The book provides a basic understanding and history of ivory along with a discussion and photos of its many uses. It argues that ivory collected from elephants that die of natural causes, are culled from authorized hunts, come from archeological sites, and emerge from recycled objects should be allowed to move in domestic and international trade.
