Narwhal Tusks

Gifted to me by a wonderful friend!

Legalities: Narwhal are primarily hunted for their meat by the Inuit of northern Canada. This hunt is tightly regulated by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and pilot projects are providing more local autonomy. The tusks provide a secondary resource and source of cash and are not the primary objective of the hunt. Trade in this ivory and its ownership is legal within Canada.
