Ivory smuggling ring busted in Hawaii

Five people and a business have been indicted for their involvement in ivory smuggling in Honolulu after federal agents intercepted numerous boxes of elephant, walrus and whale ivory.

Despite Hawaii being the one of the top three markets for elephant ivory in the US, a recent bill proposing the ban of ivory sales within the state was killed. This case proves yet again why state laws prohibiting the sale of these products are so crucial in preventing illegal wildlife trade and poaching.
