Botswana gets go ahead to sell ivory

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites) has given Botswana the go-ahead to sell 43.6 tonnes of ivory by the end of this year reports on April 7.

This is in line with what was agreed last year at The Hague. Information from the Botswana ministry of environment, wildlife and tourism shows that the Cites secretariat in Gaborone gave the country the go-ahead after verifying the government ivory stock earmarked for sale.
