Proposed Ban On Sales Of Elephant Ivory And Ivory Products In Singapore



The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) is seeking public feedback regarding a proposed ban on the sales of elephant ivory and ivory products in Singapore.

Under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), Singapore banned the international trade of all forms of elephant ivory products since 1990. However, domestic trade is permitted if traders can prove that items were imported prior to 1990 or acquired prior to the inclusion of the relevant elephant species in CITES Appendix I.

SPCA is against the ivory trade as it is an extremely cruel practice which has resulted in rapidly decreasing populations of animals, especially the Asian elephant.

We hope that you will support the ban and add your voice to the growing number who are against animal exploitation. Together, we can make a difference.

Closing date for feedback is on 27 December 2018 at 4pm.
