Imports of ivory from hippos, orcas and walruses to be banned in UK

Ivory imports from hippopotamuses, orcas and walruses will be banned under new legislation to protect the endangered species from poaching. The Ivory Act, passed in 2018, targeted materials from elephants, but a loophole meant that animals other than elephants, including hippos, were being targeted for their ivory. After a consultation, ministers have decided to tighten the ban to include all ivory-bearing species, so these will not be poached to fill the gap in the trade left by the elephant ivory ban. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/may/23/imports-of-ivory-from-hippos-orcas-and-walruses-to-be-banned-in-uk

              Poaching has in the past reduced drastically our wildlife. I hope UK will enforce this ban.
