Opening to mark the 30th anniversary of the historic African Elephant Conservation Act, Elephants and Us will explore Americans’ relationship with elephants over time. Audiences can consider the role of U.S. ivory consumption in the decline in elephant populations and the U.S. efforts to combat the species’ loss through legislation, conservation, and scientific study. Featured in this exhibit are the opening and signature pages from the 1988 African Elephant Conservation Act, on loan from the National Archives and Records Administration.
