AN ESTIMATED 100 AFRICAN ELEPHANTS ARE BRUTALLY SLAUGHTERED EACH DAY BY POACHERS SEEKING IVORY, MEAT AND BODY PARTS, LEAVING ONLY 40,000 REMAINING
Elephant numbers have dropped by 62% over the last decade, and they could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade
The demand for ivory in the Far East is the primary driver of the savage killing of elephants. In the four years up to 2014, the wholesale price of raw ivory in China tripled, reaching the value of $2100 per kilo.
This has fuelled organised crime and insecurity as traffickers smuggle tusks through the same networks as other high value illegal goods such as drugs. The illegal wildlife trade is worth $10-20bn a year, making it the fourth most lucrative black market after drugs, people and arms smuggling.
WHY WE SHOULD PROTECT ELEPHANTS?
AT THE CURRENT RATE THE AFRICAN ELEPHANT WILL BE EXTINCT IN 11 YEARS. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO END THIS!
FOR EACH SAVE OUR ELEPHANTS NECKLACE SOLD, WE DONATE DIRECTLY TO ELEPHANT CHARITIES ACROSS AFRICA.
THIS WILL GO TOWARDS:
- Securing a future for elephants and work to sustain the areas in which they live
- Creating a sustainable future for elephants by supporting “conservation, education, research and management programs worldwide
- Working with community members to help take care of the elephants
