Venue: Island Shangri-La
The Elephant Society / Jane Goodall Foundation Shangri-la, Hong Kong 2016
The Elephant Society is an organisation that is determined to end illegal wildlife trade and to abolish acts of poaching. They hope to fund raising for organisations working on the ground in East Africa and Asia to protect endangered species.
The plight of the elephant is something very dear to us all and they are happy to announce that China has now officially banned the importation of ivory products by the end of 2017. They are now looking to the Hong Kong authorities to urgently do the same.
The Live auction was expected to raise HK$600K - 700K, and Macey & Sons exceeded projections to finish at HK$1.4Million.
