Ivory is typically taken from elephant tusks, though other distinct sources, such as walrus exist. Widely used for decorative carving in period and since. Hence the sharp fall in elephant numbers in modern times, since ivory can only be obtained from a dead jumbo.

Ivory can also be obtained from dead narwhals. They're also running short in numbers, too. Is this a coincidence ?
