Now we need to get the other ivory markets to close: Hong Kong, Thailand, and Japan. African countries(Kenya, Gabon, Botswana,...) led the movement to shut down. They have been losing their rangers and elephants to poachers. "China Signals Shutdown of its Ivory Industry" by Bill Clark will be available soon online at awionline.org/awi-quarterly/2017-spring will be available soon. He says that African countries need to continue to protect the elephants and governments need to stop smuggling.
