RE: PLEASE SUPPORT EW HB2183 and SB2024 to prohibit any person to import, sell, offer for sell or possess with intent to sell any ivory product in Hawaii.
I am writing to you to ask for help. There is a global crisis surrounding the illegal ivory trade. The elephant, a keystone species vital to Africa, is on the verge of extinction. Terrorists organizations are profiting from the ivory trade, using the funds from the ivory to cover the expenses of their operations. Rangers risk their lives fighting poachers. We need to crush the demand for ivory and the illegal trade of ivory if we are to secure the future of elephants, creating a safe & stable future for African communities. I request that Hawaii, as the 2nd largest retailer of ivory in the USA, agrees to ban the ivory trade. Hawaii can play a key role in the survival of elephants and ending the bloody massacre of elephant families for the ivory trade by setting a bold and courageous example to the rest of the developed world. This letter is to ask you to please Support HB2183 and SB2024.
