"This is a photograph of an African Elephant (Loxodonta africana). “An estimated 25,000 elephants are killed each year by poachers, many of them linked to organised crime. In some places the species is close to being wiped out. 2012 was said to be the worst year ever for the illegal ivory trade in Africa.” These beautiful creatures are hunted for their ivory and other “assets.” There are different elephant species that are already endangered, and African Elephants are vulnerable to soon make the list of endangered species. The elephant is one of my favorite animals because of their human-like characteristics. If you look at their face it’s almost as if you can see every memory of their lifetime. Like they say, an elephant never forgets. We need to not forget the elephants or we will lose them."
