The current slaughter of elephants, mainly in AFRICA, threatens the largest land mammal on earth. The ivory trade driven by the Asian market is fueling the slaughter of thousands of elephants every year. The killing destroyed over half of Africa's elephants in the 1980's. In the last few years the killing has reached epic proportions. The murder of the innocents needs to stop. If the elephant is to have a  future and childhood is to know that elephants still roam free in the wild, diplomatic channels have to be alerted and a world wide alarm has to be sounded before it is too late. The elephant's future is our fate. Cyril Christo
