You may have ‘opted out’ with Brexit but you can still ‘opt in’ to vote for Elephants!

  • October 24, 2017

Hot on the heels of our recent announcement, urging all of our supporters  to participate in the UK public consultation on ivory sales www.banukivorysales.co.uk , we are now asking you to do the same in Europe as the European Commission have also launched an online consultation to find out what EU citizens think about the ivory trade.

DSWF is one of the wildlife conservation charities that have been involved with both initiatives. Please visit the MEP’s For Wildlife site here https://meps4wildlife.eu/help-ban-eu-ivory-sales/ to make your voice heard – the deadline is Friday 8th December 2017.
