Good news coming from China!
Since the Chinese government shut down the factories carving ivory in March 2017 and with the closure of all ivory items outlets expected by the end of 2017, the ivory price, as raw material, further lowered reaching the historical minimum.
Over the past three years, the price has fallen down by two-thirds, according to the Save the Elephants analysis, and this is due to a general fall in demand.
