NEW YORK, Aug. 3, 2017 - The ivory artifacts which are going to be destroyed in the Ivory Crush event are displayed at Central Park in New York, the United States, on Aug. 3, 2017. Nearly two tons of ivory artifacts crafted from the tusks of about 100 slaughtered elephants were destroyed by a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park on Thursday. The event, jointly organized by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, is designed to show New York's resolution to smash illegal ivory trade.
