At IvoryandArt.com, we firmly believe in procuring, carving and selling 100% legal Mammoth ivory worldwide. We adhere to the terms and conditions listed in the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1972 by the Dept. of the Interior/U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service & by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972.
As per the guidelines laid down in C.I.T.E.S Endangered Species list, buying, selling and importing Elephant ivory is banned globally. And we respect that because we believe in the beauty of art and preservation of the environment.
It is not just our business to sell some of the most exquisite pieces carved from pure mammoth ivory, but we love animals. To make a small contribution in the preservation of elephants and other wildlife, we contribute $1 on every purchase of any mammoth ivory art piece priced at $100 to TRAFFIC (The Wildlife Trade Monitoring Network, http://www.traffic.org/donate/), on behalf of the client.
By purchasing Mammoth ivory art pieces, you contribute to stop elephant poaching, taking a step toward conservation of the African and Asian elephants. As Mammoth ivory is over 10,000 years old, no animal is harmed but by buying an art piece crafted from legal ivory, you own a rare piece of history.
Every year 38,000 elephants are poached for the illegal trade in ivory. We condemn the killings, just like you. By buying legal ivory, you not only contribute to save the environment but you get it at the same price!
