Wildlife crime is sweeping the planet.
The illegal trafficking of wildlife is now one of the world's largest crime industries, with repeated links to terrorism networks. High target species such as elephant and rhino are being hunted to extinction. These animals are the most difficult to protect, as poachers go to the most extreme lengths to kill them. If we can safeguard these animals, the entire ecosystems are protected.

Elephant numbers have dropped by 62% over the last decade, and they could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade. An estimated 100 African elephants are killed each day by poachers seeking ivory, meat and body parts, leaving only 400,000 remaining. An insatiable lust for ivory products in the Asian market makes the illegal ivory trade extremely profitable, and has led to the slaughter of tens of thousands of African elephants. Between 2010 and 2014, the price of ivory in China has tripled, driving illicit poaching through the roof. If the elephants are to survive, the demand for ivory must be drastically reduced. As of 2011, the world is losing more elephants than the population can reproduce, threatening the future of African elephants across the continent. Bull elephants with big tusks are the main targets and their numbers have been diminished to less than half of the females. Female African elephants have tusks and are also killed, which has a terrible effect on the stability of elephant societies, leaving an increasing number of orphaned baby elephants.
World leaders, African leaders and all world citizens we have great responsibility to cutoff any act of poaching in Africa. Our voices are needed to awaken this severe problem we have to stand up for the Elephants..
Greed, corruption and ignorance is leading to the brutal, cruel destruction of Africa’s elephants at a rate not witnessed in the history of human civilization. Unless the international community takes urgent action to shut down the global ivory trade and provides more training, equipment and financial resources to African states to better protect their precious elephants from poachers, we will be the last generation to see them in the wild. These animals are dying day by day through malicious activity.
All wild animals in Africa and the rest of the world are a heritage of whole mankind, a heritage for our children and for those who will come after them.
