Educate on Walrus Ivory

 

 

In an effort to stem the poaching of African elephants, various U.S. states have passed laws banning the sale, use, or possession of all ivory, and additional states are considering such laws.

These Ivory ban laws may cause residents to face prosecution for buying, owning, or bringing home legally acquired ivory from Alaska.

In an effort to educate the public and curb the economic shockwave that could financially disadvantage communities and artist, the Indian Arts and Crafts Board produced a brochure to educate potential buyers about Ivory. Please download and share the brochure here.
