Letter of support for an EU domestic ivory ban

4 Jun 2020
The Intergroup on the Welfare and Conservation of Animals has called on the Commission to introduce a domestic ivory ban.

They've done so in a letter addressed to EC President von der Leyen, the First Vice-President Timmermans and Commissioner Sinkevičius, in which they call on the EU to pave the way an ambitious proposal to close the EU ivory market. With broad support from Parliament, Member States, stakeholders and the public, it is imperative that the Commission acts boldly and without any further delay.
