EBay has announced a worldwide ban on the sale of ivory products on its auction websites from next year.
An eBay spokesman said the move was the best way to help African and Asian elephants. The endangered animals are often hunted for their ivory tusks.
The ban comes as a conservation group prepares to release a report critical of the auction site.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare will say more than 4,000 ivory products have been listed on eBay
