Laws designed to stop poaching can make it hard for collectors to unload ivory objects
Collectors of artwork containing ivory may find themselves with a problem when it comes to planning an estate or probating a will: Many such objects are banned from sale, and museums may not accept them as donations.
The laws involving ivory are strict, because the aim is to shut down the market and put a stop to the poaching of African and Asian elephants.
