- There were once 160 species of elephants on the planet. Today, there are only three. Of the remaining species, all three are endangered.
- At the beginning of the 20th century there were a few million African elephants and about 100,000 Asian elephants. Today elephants are now considered endangered, there are about 450,000-700,000 African elephants and 35,000-40,000 Asian elephants.
- Researchers have warned there could be no elephants left in the wild in our lifetime. We run the risk of losing them forever if we don’t speak up now
- Usually the largest adults, with the biggest tusks are poached – putting the parents of elephant herds in the most danger.
- Researchers estimate that between 30,000 and 38,000 elephants are poached every year for their ivory
- "Animal poaching" is the illegal hunting, killing, or capturing of wild animals. It usually occurs when an animal has something that is considered valuable for example, tusks or animal fur.
- Poachers kill elephants to sell their tusks and skin.
- Many poachers kill the elephant, and only take their tusks for ivory.
