As the slaughter of elephants continues unabated, Möevenpick Hotels & Resorts in the Middle East are helping create the demand for ivory by renting shops inside their hotels to ivory traders.

      Booklets in each hotel room promote the shops.

      Meanwhile, tens of thousands of elephants are being killed every year for their tusks, and almost daily reports show the slaughter seems to be worsening.

      Contact Möevenpick Hotels and let them know how you feel about their policy.
