and can't scientists somehow breed elephants so they don't grow tusks? or give them drugs at young ages to prevent tusks growing? thus elimanating the source of ivory, i mean, do we really need ivory?
I heard that this was actually being considered at one time.
ETA: there's also some sort of vegatable that makes an ivory-like substance; maybe you could have ivory farms that grow and harvest that.
