    The power of a petition and public pressure. ;)

    Glad to hear it! Though, with domestic elephants receiving the same consideration as cattle, I wonder what they'll do to curb that aspect of the trade.

    The Prime Minister was at the CITES CoP, but as some people have pointed out, saying she will end trade and changing the legislation - and enforcing those changes - are two different things.

    I'm waiting to see if changes are coming, or if it's just lip service because the world is watching.

    :p
