Victory: Governor Brown signed AB 96 to ban the ivory trade in California!

Save the Elephants!Every single day, an average of 96 elephants are slaughtered for their ivory by poachers in Africa. Traders then move the ivory through illegal deals that lead to store shelves here in California.

Californians can help save the elephants by banning the ivory trade in our state. Update: AB 96 passed through the California Legislature and Governor Jerry Brown signed it into law.

Making AB 96 law will finally end the ivory trade in California by closing the loopholes that have allowed illegal ivory sales to thrive here. A recent report revealed that the vast majority of ivory sold in Los Angeles and San Francisco is likely illegal under California law.

Victory: Governor Brown signed AB 96 on September 6, 2015!

Your signature on AB 96 will finally close off the California market to ivory dealers, and help California make good on our promise to help end the cruel slaughter of elephants and rhinos.

Again, thank you for signing this important bill into law.
