Antiques dealers have been accused of flouting laws to sell banned ivory, fibbing about its age to bypass sanctions despite a high profile campaign led by the Duke of Cambridge to secure an outright ban.

A study has shown that three-quarters of antiques dealers admit being aware of illegal trading, knowing colleagues or auctioneers happy to sell modern ivory passing it off as a still-legal pre-1947 artefact.

The evidence, reported by Portsmouth University’s School of Law, has been described as “disturbing”, with such traders condemned as perpetuating the slaughter of elephants for “purely mercenary motives”.

We should start calling the DM "spooners" as they're always trying to stir up controversy. William is campaigning and concerned about the ivory trade that is going on now. I would imagine that he is intelligent to realize that things made in the past from ivory are something he cannot do anything about and they're quite valuable.

His work is to prevent the ivory trade that would allow for future items to be made.

Unsung heroes on the frontline of conservation in Africa have been hailed in a shortlist for the prestigious Tusk Awards.

Three finalists, from Malawi, Nigeria and Kenya, have been selected in the main category, while two further have been chosen in the Wildlife Ranger Award.

Prince William, the charity’s Royal Patron, who has previously spent time in Africa working with the recipients of past commendations, said it was “vital” that the work of both rangers and conservationists was recognised: “We all owe them a huge debt of gratitude.”

Strong words from the Duke of Cambridge following the killing of conservationist Wayne Lotter in Tanzania

Tusk’s Royal Patron, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, who has campaigned globally to end of the illegal wildlife trade said today, "Wayne Lotter's violent and apparently targeted murder shows just how dangerous the situation has become in relation to the big money that is associated with the illegal ivory and rhino horn trades. Rangers and conservationists put themselves in harm's way every day to stop organised criminals destroying Africa's natural resources.

Governments and NGOs must win this fight for the sake of all of us, especially those in communities whose livelihoods are being plundered by murderous criminals. My deepest condolences to Wayne's family and all those at PAMS Foundation for this senseless loss."
