  • Taking Stock - Save the Elephants
    with ivory stockpile destruction is the need for a proper accounting of the stockpile itself A number of CITES resolutions and decisions are aimed at bringing control to trade in ivory whether legal trade or illegal trafficking and stockpile inventory is an action that enhances overall control CITES CoP16 Resolution 10 10 urges all Parties to maintain an inventory of government held stockpiles of ivory and where possible of significant privately held stockpiles of ivory within their territory and inform the Secretariat of the level of this stock each year before 28 February indicating the number of pieces and their weight per type of ivory raw or worked for relevant pieces and if marked their markings in accordance with the provisions of this Resolution the source of the ivory and the reasons for any significant changes in the stockpile compared to the preceding year If stockpiles are not properly inventoried with the total number of tusks and ivory pieces and morphometrics of each tusk accounted for then that are prone to corruption For example any potential ivory leakages from national stockpiles could be covered through replacement of the missing large tusks with new smaller ones from freshly killed elephants This suggests that large unsecure stockpiles present a tangible risk to living elephants today STE s main aim for involvement in the national ivory stockpile inventory processes would be to help ensure such inventories were done to the highest scientific standards to meet the CITES requirements Another aim would be to hopefully gain additional scientific information about the elephant source populations supplying the ivory Algorithms have been developed to determine the age of an elephant from the size mass of its tusk Elephant subspecies gender and cause of death can also be determined from tusk characteristics in some instances DNA samples taken from seized tusks could be used to determine the actual origin of those tusks Knowing this type of demographic information about the animals that constitute the stockpile could contribute to our understanding of the impacts of the illegal trade on the species in terms of seized or confiscated ivory and mortality trends in terms of tusks from elephants that died as a result of Problem Animal Control and natural mortality at local scales but also regional and continental scales Presently international and even national level policy decision about African elephant management rest largely on the knowledge about the scope and scale of the impacts of the illegal ivory trade on the African elephant resulting from data from the CITES MIKE and ETIS programs Ivory stockpiles offer a unique opportunity for an additional hard data stream that could help increase the resolution on the impacts of the illegal trade on the species that has been largely untapped Knowing the DNA origin of seized tusks could help authorities identify poaching hotspots and focus enforcement activities Lastly and perhaps just as importantly STE sees stockpile inventory as a valuable and necessary first step toward eventual stockpile destruction More Projects Under Protection Anti
