More than 40 000 Elephants were killed last year in Africa alone. Increased demand for ivory, is causing a dramatic escalation in poaching and a fast decline in the Elephant population. Due to the human population explosion, Elephants are losing more of their natural habitat. For the Elephant population to increase, they need space, but they have nowhere to go. Their last havens are National Parks and Reserves where their numbers will only naturally increase, according to the size and habitat of these Parks and Reserves. Other problems facing the world elephant population include human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity. Do what you can to support the plight of these magnificent and intelligent mammals and experience Elephants only in a sustainable natural habitat.
