A panel of experts in art history, law, and Arctic studies, spoke recently about historic significance of ivory as an artistic medium and the implication of new regulations on the transport of ivory nationally and internationally as part of efforts to protect elephants and other endangered species.

The speakers are Stephen J. Knerly Jr., Esq., of Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP; Genevieve LeMoine, curator, Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum; and Stephen Perkinson, Peter M. Small Associate Professor of Art History. They offer many perspectives on this issue.
