The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation is drafting a law change to ban the domestic ivory trade in an attempt to reduce international pressure over the illegal ivory trade in the country...
Under the current law, the department has the authority to examine stocks of ivory held by private operators. The law change would not allow new ivory or ivory products to be added to their stocks.
"We will make regulations tougher and tougher until there is no longer ivory trade in the country," he said.
