Craft or species

Here are some discussion questions from the National Geographic website:

1. How is the art of the master carver different from that of the factory carvers? Why is this distinction important?

2. Is it possible to maintain the tradition of ivory carving and ensure the survival of Africa’s elephants at the same time? Why or why not?
