Subject: TIGHTEN RESTRICTIONS on IVORY SALES in NY and MOVE TO BAN

Dear Chair of the New York State Assembly Committee on Environmental Conservation and colleagues,

Happy new year and greetings from California!

96 elephants are killed each day by poachers to fuel the ivory trade of which New York State represents the largest market for in the U.S. TIGHTEN RESTRICTIONS on IVORY SALES and MOVE TO BAN. The ivory trade sponsors terrorism, is killing humans and driving elephants to extinction. At the rate of one elephant killed every 15 minutes for its ivory tusks, there will be no more elephants roaming wild by 2025. You have the power to help prevent this by moving for a 100% ivory ban by making New York State ivory-free.

Thank you!

Sincerely,

[Your Name] [Your mailing address, or at least city, state, zip]
