Can you bring together scientist and engineers to make Ivory and stop the killing of elephants and rhinoceros for their tusks?

In Africa, poachers are killing the elephants and rhinoceroses for there tusks, scientist and engineers should be able to use nanotechnology and 4d printing to make Ivory artificially.

    It sounds cruel but it does remove the need to hunt them down and kill so many of them.
