Actress and New Jersey native Meryl Streep released the following statement urging New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to sign into law S.2012/A.3128 to prohibit all sales and trade in rhino horns and elephant ivory in the state:

“As a New Jersey native I was delighted to learn from my friends at The Humane Society of the United States that our state could be the first in the country to enact a ban on the importation and sale of ivory – a product of horrific cruelty to elephants and rhinos, who could very well become extinct within decades if we don’t act now. Governor, you have my full support and I hope you usher this critical bill through without delay.”
