Environment: Poaching of Elephants Across the Africa

(FILES) This aerial picture taken on April 5, 2013 shows a herd of elephants in the Zakouma National Park, 800 kms east of N'Djamena. Africa could lose 20 percent of its elephant population in a decade if current poaching levels are not slowed, animal conservation groups warned on December 2, 2013. An estimated 22,000 elephants were illegally killed across the continent last year, as poaching reached "unacceptably elevated levels," said a joint statement by CITES, TRAFFIC and IUCN.
