WWF Anti Poaching Campaign

WWF Anti Poaching Campaign

Do we need to say more ? China’s rapacious appetite for ivory –closely matched by Thailand and Japan — could spell the end of African elephants in our lifetime.

Here is what the New York Times reports today:

  • 25,000 killed in 2011
  • More than 30,000 last year
  • Wildlife Conservation Society says that more than 60% of African forest elephants have been killed in the last decade — for their tusks!
