Help end wildlife trafficking

Ivory, horns, fins and more
Bring it all in,
With the passing of Act I-1401, items from some endangered species are now illegal to sell in Washington. Bring yours in today to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife tent outside our front entrance - no questions asked.
More about the Act
You don't need tusks
(But they do.)
Trinkets made from ivory, horn or fins are now worth nothing to you. But they're worth everything to living animals that need them to survive. By taking them off the market, we reduce demand and keep these animals alive. Includes products from elephants, rhinos, tigers, lions, cheetahs, leopards, pangolins, sharks, sea turtles and rays.
End wildlife trafficking
Help inspire others
to protect wildlife.
What will the WDFW do with your surrendered ivory or fins? First, we won't even see them inside the Zoo. The agency will either destroy them, or use them for education purposes, inspiring future generations to help protect these wild animals - not kill them.

Our protected species

Asian elephant
Sumatran tiger
