In this photo taken on Feb. 7, 2013, Ganesh figures made of ivory are on display in a souvenir shop in famous ivory carving town of Nakhon Sawan, Thailand. Price tag on each worked piece rank between 30,000 – 35,000 Thai Baht. (US$1,000 -1,166). How to slow the slaughter and curb the trade in “blood ivory” will be among the most critical issues up for debate at the 177-nation Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, or CITES, that gets under way Sunday, March 3, 2013 in Bangkok.
