WELCOME TO CHATTERIS MUSEUM
Message received today
“Dear Ian and the team at Chatteris Museum,
I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge your decision to hand the ivory in the museum’s possession over to IFAW for destruction. While the antiques trade and so many other museums are up in arms about the ban that the UK Government is working to impose, it is really refreshing and encouraging to see Chatteris Museum making a moral decision like this and giving elephants the due respect they deserve, putting their tusks beyond economic use and sending a clear message on the horrors of the ivory trade.
People are often quick to criticise when poor decisions are made, but in my experience they sometimes forget to give credit where it is due, so I wanted to say thank you. Though I have never visited the museum, I grew up in Somersham before moving away at the age of 14, so I know it must only be a small. However, the decision you have made is big and it has not gone unnoticed”
