Event Details

The Ivory Game exposes the dark world of ivory trafficking. Ivory is a prized status symbol for middle class Chinese, and poachers in pursuit of “white gold” are slaughtering African elephants in record numbers. The directors filmed undercover for 16 months infiltrating and documenting the deep-rooted corruption at the heart of the global ivory trafficking crisis. Speakers from NGOs will join a post-screening discussion.

Speakers:
Mr. Huang Hongxiang (Chinese Activist)
Dr. Yannick Kuehl (Regional Director - East & South Asia, TRAFFIC)
Ms. Cheryl Lo (Senior Wildlife Crime Officer, WWF-Hong Kong)
