Elephants at play

     Illegal hunting (primarily to obtain ivory) and habitat loss have combined to cause dramatic  declines in the numbers of both African and Asian elephants. In 1930, there were between five  and 10 million wild African elephants, plying the entire African continent in large bands. Today  that number is likely less than 500,000.
