Ivory ban campaign gets star backing

Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio has called on the Thai government to ban all ivory trade in the country, as part of a global campaign to tackle the illegal wildlife crimes.

Conservation group the World Wildlife Fund said yesterday that DiCaprio sent a personal email to friends and supporters to encourage them to sign a petition pressing prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra over the wildlife trade.
