It was a courageous decision for the prime minister to make, and your action made a big difference. With Avaaz and WWF, you were part of an amazing 1.6 million-strong team urging her to stand up for elephants and ban Thai ivory trade.
This is an enormous step forward in the fight to stop wildlife crime.
