African Elephants Have Been In Peril for Hundreds of Years


Negative Effects of Ivory Trade and Habitat Destruction on African Elephants

Health Editor’s Note: West African elephant tusks were analyzed to determine what specific herds the elephants came from. At the time of the harvest of the tusks, reclaimed from the ship wreck from 500 years ago, there was evidence of 17 herds where now there are only 4 herds. If we did not believe that elephants are in great peril, this is proof that elephants have been disappearing for hundreds of years. Let’s hope we can stop their destruction before they are gone from the face of the earth…..Carol

  1. Elvin, Humans can build homes that go up in the air, for many stories if needed, not needed acres of land. Leave the land for the elephants and better yet, vacate the areas where humans have invaded elephant territories. People are movable, elephants are not. Who let people into these areas in the first place?
