THE WHITE HOUSE HAS STRATEGIZED/BANNED THE SALE OF MOST (NOT ALL) IVORIES ACROSS STATE LINES.(Dateline Feb 2014).

THE RULES VARY FOR VINTAGE PRE-OWNED IVORY, ANTIQUE IVORY, AND MAMMOTH IVORY. EACH ITEM ON THE WEBSITE IS MARKED ACCORDINGLY. ANTIQUE IVORY OVER 100 YEARS OLD AND WOOLY MAMMOTH IVORY ARE READILY AVAILABLE. VINTAGE (less than 100 years old) ELEPHANT IVORY IS AVAILABLE FROM THIS SELLER ONLY TO ARIZONA BUYERS. IT IS NOTED THAT IN THE WISDOM OF THE WHITE HOUSE, THE STRATEGY/BAN DECIMATES THE VALUE OF VINTAGE ITEMS BY SELLERS CAREFUL TO OBEY THE PREVIOUS BAN WHILE, CONTRARY TO ACTUAL SENSIBLE STRATEGY, ALLOWS HUNTERS TO KILL ELEPHANTS AND IMPORT IVORY IN A QUOTA PER HUNTER PER YEAR. APPARENTLY THIS MEANS THAT AN ENTHUSIASTIC HUNTER CAN IMPORT *TWO PIECES (TUSKS) PER YEAR, PERHAPS FOR THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS, AND SAYS NOTHING ABOUT LIMITING THE NUMBERS OF HUNTERS ENJOYING THE EXCEPTION.

*Unless tusks defined as "pieces" are counted in pairs of tusks, in which case each hunter can import the ivory from two elephants.

SPARKLZ THANKS ALL WHO HAVE UNDERSTOOD THAT BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE PRE-OWNED IVORY SHOULD BE CONSERVED AND ENJOYED AS A REMINDER OF THE MAJESTY OF THE THESE FASTASTIC ANIMALS.


February 14, 2014 White House Introduces New Ban on Commercial Ivory Trade The White House announced this week that as part of their new National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking, the U.S. will implement a ban on the commercial sale and trade of elephant ivory. The White House has stated that this ban is the best way to help ensure that U.S. markets do not contribute to the further decline of African elephants in the wild. Federal Departments and Agencies will immediately undertake administrative actions to implement the following: 1. All commercial imports of African elephant ivory, including antiques, will be prohibited. 2. All commercial exports will be prohibited, except for bona fide antiques, certain noncommercial items, and in exceptional circumstances permitted under the Endangered Species Act. 3. Finalize the rule that all sales of ivory across state lines are banned, except for bona fide antiques. Sales within a state are also banned unless the seller can demonstrate an item was lawfully imported prior to 1990 for African elephants and 1975 for Asian elephants. 4. To qualify as an antique, an item must be more than 100 years old and meet other requirements under the Endangered Species Act. The burden is now on the importer, exporter, or seller to demonstrate that an item meets these criteria. 5. Limit the number of African elephant sport-hunted trophies that an individual can import to two per hunter per year. Any questions on current imports and exports of plant and wildlife products can be directed to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service at www.fws.gov.
