Animals are actually poached more often after being placed on the endangered species list; this is because people can no longer obtain that animal or items made from that animal and the consumer demand increases making for a profitable market. However, once there is a band placed on poaching the rate of poaching and money made from it seems to fall dramatically. It was reported in 1989 that when a ban was placed in ivory trade that the price of an 8kg elephant tusk fell from $3,800 to $35 and that the number of elephants killed in Tanzania each year dropped from 10,000 to 100.
