Abstract: 

On November 17, 2017, the Trump administration announced that its initial reversal of a ban on the importation of elephant ivory from Zimbabwe had been put on hold. The decision comes after criticism from animal rights activists as well as policymakers on the administration’s decision to roll back the bans on elephant ivory imports put in place by the Obama administration.
