Despite the news earlier in October that the UK government are discussing a full ivory ban, there are still several other factors at play that are decreasing the elephants' population in the wild. Except for slaughtering elephants for their ivory tusks, people are also killing the poor animals for their skin in some other parts of the world.


A record number of elephants in Asia are losing their lives to cater for a new fashion trend that uses the elephant skin to make jewelry, including bracelets and necklaces, according to latest reports. As Monica Wrobel, Head of Conservation at wildlife charity Elephant Family, said: “These elephants were killed to order. The herd was tracked, slaughtered, and every bit of skin taken.”

The elephant's skin is removed from the body soon after the animal has been killed, usually by a poison dart. Then, the skin is polished and made into beads in blood-red color and sold as jewelry pieces for up to £75 each. What caused this trend was an Asian belief that these beads could ward off illnesses.

While these elephants are now being killed in Myanmar, the skin is being smuggled to Xishuangbanna, South West China, the place where the demand currently lies. Additionally, investigators have found that the bracelets are being sold widely on Chinese websites.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove has recently announced plans to ban all ivory sales in the UK, to help save elephants around the world

During some investigations that were conducted previously in 2017, up to sixty-six elephant trunks were seized in only one haul, and demand for the jewelry is increasing, meaning that there is a brutal incentive for even more elephants to be killed for their skin. According to reports, if this cruel trade continues to grow at its current rate, those elephants, which are already in danger, could be facing the brink of extinction within just two years.

  1. This review is written with clear conscience after reading terrible things done to some innocent people who needed help getting back their partner by some unsuspecting spell casters. It was too shameful to say this, but I victimized twice due to my desperation when I was going through harsh closure divorce. The funny thing is that my colleague was also a victim. It took us couple of months to research for the best among the rest.
    If I am being asked to rate a spell caster according to the authenticity of their work, I will give a 5-star rating to Dr. Wakina for not just his breathtaking work but for restoring the faith in humanity.
    Note: this is not a cheap publicity, but a true story of my life, a woman who once lost everything to another appealing woman. I and my friend welcome back our partners via the help of Dr. Wakina.
    By restoring my faith and reuniting my family I believe Dr. Wakina through his email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com can help a lot of people out there currently going through broken heart, home and divorce.

  2. I'm so shocked. Traditional Chinese medicine has so much cruel material. Human ask too many thing from animal, meat, strength, ivory and now skin. A little ill, a little cough worth life of thousand elephants? Go find some pills when you catch a cold!! Wear this kind of jewelry can't make you look better, you feel sympathetic when you see a dog hurt, how about a elephant, being hunted, being shot, being skinned, left rotten?
