An agency in Kenya is calling for a world boycott of South Africa’s proposed sale of ivory stockpiles. The South Africa government is planning to submit a proposal to the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species that would allow the country to sell off its ivory stockpiles, but Kenya Wildlife Services, as well as the International Fund for Animal Welfare and other conservation organizations, say that granting permission to sell the stockpiles would increase the market for ivory — whether it was obtained legally or illegally. KWS fears that South African efforts to obtain permission under CITES has fueled a recent boom in poaching and could lead to further decimation of elephant populations.
