Poachers Aren’t Going to ‘Like’ These Tech Companies Teaming Up to Fight the Ivory Trade


Facebook, Google, and eBay are joining Warren Buffett and environmental groups in a campaign to stop wildlife trafficking.

Feeling lucky, poachers?

Google is joining Facebook, eBay, Warren Buffett, the United States government and environmental groups in a new effort to fight the illegal trade in elephant ivory, rhino horns, tiger bones, and other products driving wildlife toward extinction.

The goal of the U.S. Wildlife Trafficking Alliance is to raise awareness about wildlife trafficking and reduce Americans’ demand for products that promote poaching. The alliance also aims to give companies the tools they need to make sure they’re not selling, shipping, or otherwise enabling the sales of illegal wildlife-related products.
