When we think of the illegal ivory trade, most people envision the large smuggling busts that happen in Africa or Asia. It may surprise you to learn that the port of Newark in New Jersey is a hub for the illegal wildlife trade. The Garden State recently took a symbolic stand against this horrific practice by passing a bill that eliminates the trade in ivory and rhinoceros horn. The politicians who sponsored the bill, along with those from top conservation organizations, applaud the move and are confident it will help to deter poaching around the world.
