(Sacramento) – Speaker Toni G. Atkins’ Assembly Bill 96, which would close loopholes that prevent the effective enforcement of existing California law prohibiting the sale of ivory, has been approved by the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee. “On average, 96 elephants per day are brutally killed for their ivory, translating into an average of over 35,000 elephants per year,” said Speaker Atkins (D-San Diego). “This type of species loss is unsustainable and African elephants are now being slaughtered faster than they are being born.” Here’s more from the Speaker in this Assembly Web Report.
