A hundred years ago we had over Ten million elephants. Since then there has been a massive decline in numbers. During 1979 and 1989 half of the population of African elephants were lost. Elephant census estimates we are down to less than 400,000
Today on earth more elephants are killed than are born.
It doesn't take a mathematician to realise that the elephant population in the wild is diminishing at an astounding rate. Human Elephant conflict due to expansion of habitat, farming across sacred elephant corridors, poaching for Ivory and climate change all takes its toll on the humble African elephant.
"Wildlife doesn't have much time, and it definitely doesn't have much space."
