Tell eBay to Stop All Ivory Auctions
As the largest Internet marketplace for ivory sales, eBay is directly and indirectly assisting the illegal trade in wildlife as well as the poachers who create it.
eBay has expressed its commitment to a global policy on the ivory trade and a willingness to work closely with IFAW on drafting such a policy and its enforcement. But words are not enough.

UPDATE: 17th JUNE 08
One year after eBay, Inc. announced restrictions on the trade of elephant ivory across international borders, IFAW investigators have found that eBay auctions of illegal ivory have skyrocketed in the United States. This, despite reports of large reductions in ivory auctions in some foreign countries where eBay affiliate offices have severely restricted or banned the trade in ivory completely.
