Poaching, habitat loss driving African elephants to brink of extinction

African elephants, which are now classified as two separate species – savanna and forest elephants – are facing extinction due to widespread poaching to sustain the illegal international ivory trade and habitat loss. The IUCN has classified the forest elephant as ’critically endangered’ and the savanna elephant as ’endangered.’ There are just around 400,000 elephants left in Africa now.

I say we annex all of Africa and turn it into a giant nature reserve.

Conservations help alot, but then everyone loses their S when the conservation has a hunt to pay the bills.

The countries that legalize the hunting of the elephants tend to be able to fend off the poachers a lot better and have better population numbers in general.
