Elephant numbers have dropped by 62% over the last decade.
They could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade. An estimated 100 African elephants are killed each day by poachers seeking ivory, meat and body parts, leaving only 400,000 remaining. – per http://worldelephantday.org/about/elephants.
An elephant is killed every minute. The past few years the demand for ivory has gone up. As prices sky rocket, poaching increases.
We can stop this if we act now.
