Working Groups

 


SSN ELEPHANT WORKING GROUP

Members of the SSN Elephant Working Group work together to investigate, report, campaign and lobby on issues relating to trade in African and Asian elephants and their body parts. The international ivory trade-both legal and illegal remains a significant threat to many elephant populations. The Elephant Working Group has produced reports on illegal ivory seizures and elephant poaching for the last three Meetings of the Conference of the Parties to CITES. The Working Group also addresses live elephant trade for zoos, safari parks and other entertainment facilities.
