"This issue of Curator: The Museum Journal is intended to explore the contemporary subject of ivory in the museum space, to argue for its importance in museum collections of all kinds, and at the same time to propose greater awareness of the plight of the elephant, whose survival is central to the protection of valued ecological systems. The different voices that have joined us in preparing this issue demonstrate that the international museum and scholarly community is passionately engaged in protecting both a species that has played valued roles in human society and the evidence of our cultural history represented by material artifacts."

Thanks, Alison for posting. I've just started to explore the articles included.
