Led by implementing partner NRDC, this project provides an in-depth review of China’s ivory trade policies and domestic ivory market, providing guidance to the CITES Management Authority of China and the country’s State Forestry Administration.

NRDC is considered one of the nation’s most effective environmental action group, combining the grassroots power of more than 2 million members and online activists with the courtroom clout and expertise of nearly 500 lawyers, scientists and other professionals.

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
