No To Ivory Souvenirs and Gifts

An example of effective leveraging of partnership with the private sector, the video "No to Ivory Souvenirs and Gifts" was produced by the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF), with technical support and co-share from the USAID Wildlife Asia. GTAEF is the corporate foundation of the Thailand-based Minor Group that owns and manages a portfolio of 161 hotels globally, with large hotel chains in Thailand.

Buying ivory is now illegal in China, but there is serious concern that the illegal market for ivory might shift to Thailand, where there is a legal market for ivory from domestic Thai elephants. One area where the hotel chains can effectively contribute is to help reduce demand for illegal wildlife parts and products, such as ivory, among tourists in Thailand, particularly those who stay in their hotels. GTAEF and USAID Wildlife Asia are promoting the video to other hotel chains in Thailand and Southeast Asia so that they may adapt the video with their own branding and disseminate it in their own networks. Please  contact for more information.
