    But it will have to do more if it really wants to stop poaching Alone, China's ban on ivory could make life worse for elephants But if China does not simultaneously tackle its much larger illegal trade in ivory, the ban could perversely make it more lucrative for the poaching gangs who massacre Africa’s elephants and ship their tusks to Asia. The major ivory market in China is black In order to undermine the illicit trade, the ban aims to send a message to the Chinese public that ivory products – which embody both status and cultural values – are now taboo. This is intended to reduce demand and price. The illegal market needs big profits to operate, given the high risks of operating a multinational smuggling operation.
