Elephant

Note* All the Elephant hides we sell are tagged through the CITES treaty and only on South African elephants.  CITES (Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species) insures the animals are protected against over exploitation and to prevent trade of threatened animals.   There are 7 countries out of 37 in Africa that have overpopulation of elephants.  Specifically Zimbabwe has in excess of 70,000 elephants, nearly double the amount the environment can support.  So every year, in just those 7 countries, there are permits to help conserve the species-much like we have in the US with deer.  The hides we get are only permitted hides, the tags are still intact for proof.
