And the future of Elephants is in our hands.
This year’s focus is on elephants – African and the Asian variety. It’s estimated that 100,000 African elephants were slaughtered for their ivory between 2010 and 2012. Asian elephants are losing their habitat.
There is some progress, but more needs to be done to protect elephants and to stop the illegal trafficking of all wildlife.
