No. This is about species listed under Appendix II, which means species that are not at risk of total extinction, but *are* at risk of commercial exhaustion.

Ivory is listed under a different Appendix, and this recommendation (not a change in the law, note) has no effect.

Frankly, it's unlikely that ivory will ever become easier to move across borders in our lifetimes, I would say.
