Last quote by Dan Stiles
That's unbelievable. Three years ago he [the trader] was offered $650/kg by the Daxin Ivory Carving Factory in Guangzhou and turned it down. He just gave up trying to get a decent price – it was money for his daughter's education. I think there will be an increase in illegal selling to cover the gap made by the closure of legal markets. As long as the poaching continues at these high rates, it looks like there are still quite high volumes of ivory in spite of the seizures that have been made.feedback
