Ivory Smuggling Bust at Thai Airport…

Ivory is still being funnelled through Thailand to Hong Kong and beyond as officials continue to intercept this major serious contraband item. Thai officials are under pressure from CITIES to be more aggressive in policing imported and exported items that are internationally prohibited and/or protected by the laws of various countries.

Most often these shipments are destined to Hong Kong, then shipped from there to other parts of China. The Government of China recently banned the possession of ivory in a major attempt to stem this illicit trade!
