Majority Of Public In Western Europe And North America Support New Ban On Ivory Products

1 June 2007

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) recently released the results of an International Ivory Trade survey conducted by Ipsos MORI in Canada, France, Great Britain, Spain and the USA, which asked approximately 1,000 adults aged 15+ in each country 'What stance, if any, would you personally like your Government to take on a proposed new ban on the trade in ivory?'

Over eight in ten people in France (85%) and Great Britain (83%), three in four people in Spain (76%), seven in ten people in Italy (72%) and USA (72%), and two in three Canadians (66%) supported the new ban. This included seven out of ten members of public in France (71%) and Spain (71%) who strongly support the new ban.

The ratio of support to opposition is the highest in Northern Europe — France (12:1) and Great Britain, (10:1), followed by Spain (8:1) and America (8:1), and then Italy (5:1) and Canada (3:1). While the results are varied from country-to-country they clearly show that the majority of the general public in these countries supports the new ban.
