The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service pledges to address both the supply and demand that fuel ivory trade in the United States. We will close our domestic ivory market, cutting off the supply of illegal ivory. We will also reduce consumer demand for ivory products by educating consumers about the impact that ivory trade has on elephant populations.
