Africa’s decrease in population of elephants

Elephant poaching

To show you the devastating killing of the elephants. We had lost the mammoths, and now we are losing our elephants. If this continues, our grandchildren might not get to see them, only in the zoos. Shame on China, as you’ll soon see in another post they are the highest buyers of Ivory.

This map shows the population of elephants living in each region during 1979 (light brown).

In contrast, the darker brown demonstrates the current number of elephants in the region, as of 2007.  As of now you can imagine the numbers are a lot worse, and by 2014 there might not be any left.
