For vocabulary and exercises: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/features/witn/ep-150624
Beautiful ornaments from an ugly trade.
More than a ton of ivory has been taken to New York's Times Square and destroyed as a protest.
Many of the items were confiscated from an antiques dealer in Philadelphia.
The international trade of ivory was made illegal in 1989 but officials say around 35,000 elephants are still being slaughtered in Africa every year.
The message is that traders' profits should be crushed and people shouldn't buy ivory.
(Note: 1 ton = 907.185 kg)
objects used for their beauty, with no practical purpose
items taken away by an authority
against the law
(here) reduced dramatically; destroyed
