Well with the positive election results in Botswana it looks like we will be hunting elephant and buffalo there in 2020. This raises the question of ivory imports. Does anyone know, or know how to run to ground, the USFW position on ivory imports from Botswana? The last that I had heard it had the same status as Namibia and RSA, i.e. CITES imports were still being allowed. However, I need to get positive confirmation of the current status and would appreciate any help. Thanks!

It will be like all others on a case by case basis. Contact John Jackson at Conservation Force. Best of luck.
