Thank you for covering this more informatively that I’ve seen in most media. Such an important issue, cultural preservation. This ivory ban, while forcing us to articulate it in terms of economic resource, is at it’s core about the continuation of an ancient and sustainable culture, one without the heavy carbon footprint upon our shared planet than other models, other perspectives of land, the sea. It’s inseparable from the intersections with culture, basic nourishment needs, economic resource, artistic freedom, and the rights of the indigenous in this world to participate meaningfully and equitably in matters involving both conservation and development issues.
