I am sending a copy of the just received White Paper to all the members of the IIS who have supported the Political Action Network and all the contributors to its funding. These books are going out tomorrow. I would like to sell books to the rest of the membership to try to make up the deficit we are currently running. I would appreciate it if you would put the following notice and picture into a special announcement to the membership.
The Political Action Network of the International Ivory Society has just published its White Paper on IVORY'S CULTURAL IMPORTANCE. The full color, 48-page book outlines ivory's contributions to the past and its significance to the future and argues that ivory's place should not be eclipsed by any unreasonable or ineffective restraints on its trade or movement. The book has been presented to everyone involved with the Presidential Task Force on Combating Wildlife Trafficking and has been mailed to everyone who contributed to the Political Action Network.
It is now available to members of the International Ivory Society. Some will want to add it to their own collection of books on ivory; others will want to give copies to political and cultural leaders in their community to involve them in the debate on how best to stop poaching and control the stocks of legal ivory to satisfy demand.
If you would like one or more copies of the book, please authorize a payment of $7.50 each via PayPal or send a check in the appropriate amount to:
