Today is World Environment Day. A day celebrated every year on 5 June to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet Earth.
This World Environment Day, Iconic Africa celebrates the most profound progression in conservation of late.
A recent report in the Guardian stated that China has agreed to phase out its ivory industry to combat elephant poaching. This is most definitely a step in the right direction and some incredible news for conservation!
This the first time China has committed to phase out its ivory industry, a massive movement in the fight for the elephants. The decision will have a tangible impact on wild elephant conservation and the ivory trade.
Iconic Africa, conservationists and the elephants thank you.
