2018, a year without ivory in China

It's a huge step in fighting elephant poaching: it is now completely illegal to sell or buy ivory in China.

    Some facts: The international ban on ivory trade was in 1990. China banned the international trade only from 2015 and didn't take actions against illegal ivory. 70% Of the ivory from poachers from 1990, untill 2015 (2017!) went to China. Ivory trade is still going through Europe! Ivory from poachers. Ivory is still imported by the USA and Vietnam. Since the ban in 1990, millions of elephants were killed. Glad that China took actions even after 25+! years of the international ban, although Europe played a dubious rol in the trade and USA also imports ivory.

    The sad thing, it won’t help. There is a worldwide ban on the rhino horn, did it help to stop poaching? No, if we continue the same way, there is no rhino in 2 years (one of species just extinct 2 weeks ago). As soon as there is a demand, there will be an offer. So it will just be on the black market with no control.

    Don't need to close business just change ivory for some other material and do the carving, some tradcions should change we are not in the old century anymore, this things still around because old mindset people still believing that some stones and materials like ivory brings them good luck, the only thing is if this materials bring good luck supposed to the owner of ivory shop win lottery every year or finds a gold mine, but at the end of the day they still need stupid believers to buy their stuff.
