Abu Dhabi International Airport recently launched an awareness campaign to combat trafficking of ivory.

The campaign was rolled out at the airport’s transit area, which is expected to reach to more than 300,000 passengers during its run until 13 August 2015.

The campaign will highlight that smuggling ivory could lead to prosecution under an awareness campaigned of the UAE Ministry of Environment and Water (MoEW), Abu Dhabi International Airport Custom – the general directorate of customs, Abu Dhabi Airports and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).

In addition, a collection of confiscated ivory items are also being displayed to educate passengers about ivory trade and encourage them to reject wildlife products.
