Thailand says “No” to ivory in two-tusked campaign funded by USAID

A two-pronged campaign to reduce domestic consumer and foreign traveller demand for ivory and ivory products launched in Bangkok, Thailand yesterday.

While much of the focus of the launch event was on the domestic consumer campaign and the celebrity influencers who are the faces of it, of greatest relevance to the tourism industry is the 60-second animated video to discourage visitors to the Kingdom from buying ivory gifts and souvenirs.

Produced by US Agency for International Development (USAID) Wildlife Asia in collaboration with the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF) of the Minor Group, the video informs tourists that bringing ivory in and out of Thailand is illegal.
