AWF on Charlie Rose
 
  Talking Ivory with Charlie Rose

The elephant ivory crisis is often discussed in the news these days, but what can we do to put an end to the devastating ivory trade? AWF's CEO, Dr. Patrick Bergin, who is also a member of the U.S. Advisory Council on Wildlife Trafficking, supermodel and AWF Trustee Veronica Varekova, and Marcus Asner, an alternate member of the advisory council, sat down with renowned television host Charlie Rose on his popular show to discuss the history of the elephant ivory trade, AWF's involvement on the conservation forefront, and, most importantly, how we can work together to put a stop to poaching and trafficking. "There is no future in ivory," said Bergin. "If you're in this business, get out of this business."
