Story of the Week 每周一报 Ivory protest 美国在纽约时代广场公开销毁非法象牙制品 Transcript 文字稿 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) Vocabulary 词汇 ornaments 装饰物 confiscated 没收 illegal
