Why are elephants poached and killed for their tusks?

Elephant big tusks
Elephants are poached for the value of their Ivory. Poachers in Africa kill the elephants, who then sell them to the smugglers, and they sell them. Last year alone over 100,00 were massacred, which was a tragedy. They sawed off their tusks, which goes to the upper status people of China who love the carved Ivory and want it in their house. Right now its over $1,300 a pound. China has been purchasing that poached ivory at an alarming rate. If this continues, there will be no more elephants, the day might come where we no longer get to see them, only in the zoos.
