Pre-historic Woolly Mammoth Ivory - Salvation for Elephants Today?

Woolly Mammoth Tusks (podcast documentary)

Could recovery of fossil woolly mammoth tusks from the melting permafrost in the north of Canada and other countries help to stem the demand for elephant ivory? Currently, it is primarily a sideline income for gold prospectors.

What is the potential for creating an indigenous cottage industry in our north to collect this material? What is the potential impact on the local environment? This podcast interviews a Canadian government archeologist based in the Yukon.
