To give some context to the urgency of this situation, consider these facts:
— 10 years ago there were 1.2 million African Elephants—now there are just 450,000 remaining.
— Nearly 100 are killed every day for their ivory.
— 60% of African elephants have been slaughtered in the last 10 years.
— At this rate, most African elephant populations will be gone in a decade.
In short, the future of elephants is in our hands.
