It is beyond belief that in 2021 the sale of elephant skins is condoned and deemed legal by the regulatory board CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) that is supposed to protect those species of wildlife who are under threat of extinction.
CITES has banned the sale/trade in elephant ivory. Yet our #elephants, especially our Asian elephants, continue to be threatened by the sale of elephant skins worldwide, including trade in the United States of America.
These elephant skins are used for such vanity products as cowboy boots, handbags/purses, belts, jackets & other clothing items. “The skins are also used to make “blood beads” which look like garnets and are worn as necklaces.”
STAND BY YOUR ELEPHANTS!
