‘This is the last chance saloon,’ say politicians and campaigners pushing for urgent action

The UK and EU, the world’s largest exporters of legal ivory, have been accused of not doing enough to save Africa’s fast disappearing elephant populations.
“This is the last chance saloon to save elephants,” said UK Labour MP Justin Madders at a meeting at Westminster Hall on Monday where more than 30 MPs on both sides of the chamber debated a public petition of 107,000 signatories calling for government to close its domestic ivory markets.
He added that even though the UK government announced some proposals to restrict the sale of ivory, “there is a general concern that the proposals do not go far enough in protecting elephants”.
Africa, China and the US are leading efforts to reverse the critical situation for elephants – whose numbers in Africa are believed to have declined by a third in the last seven years – while the UK and Europe are lagging behind.
