Ivory trade in China is legal and the Country imports at least 20,000 elephants per year. The Chinese government isn’t doing anything to avoid the massacre of endangered species and, according to Prince William’s opinion, is looking the other way and lets criminals thrive. Not only elephants but rhinos horns are sold as well because ivory is thought to have magical healing powers.
Prince William’s passion for wildlife brought him to strongly criticize Chinese behavior: “Together they loot our planet, to feed mankind’s ignorant craving for pets, trinkets, cures and ornaments derived from the world’s vanishing and irreplaceable species”. And added: “It is wrong that children growing up in countries vulnerable to wildlife crime are losing their birthright in order to fuel the greed of international criminals”.
