Peter DinklageMakes Statement

Supports NY ivory ban

11 Jun, 2014

Dinklage expresses his support for a statewide ban on ivory trading in New York, partnering with the Humane Society of the United States to get the word out about an upcoming vote on the issue. Urging voters to support the ban, he says

It is an unfortunate fact that New York is home to the largest retail market of ivory in the United States. With more than 35,000 elephants killed for their tusks in 2013 alone, New York has a responsibility to pass legislation that would ban the sale of ivory products poached by criminal gangs, wildlife traffickers and international terrorist organizations.
