Transcript of A Dwindling Race

“This much is certain: the richest wildlife communities in Africa are found neither in pure woodlands nor in pure savannas, but in areas where the two general types of habitat meet and become interspersed with each other. Elephants are one of the most important agents influencing the dynamics of that mixture, and their activities generally increase the overall biological diversity of a region. Conserving elephants, then, becomes much more than an issue about how to protect a single great species. It is about protecting one of the forces that shapes ecosystems and helps sustain the wealth of wildlife found across much of the continent. It is about saving the creative power of nature.”
~Douglas Chadwick In the 1930's, there was an estimated 7-10 million elephants in existence. A Dwindling Race Today, there numbers have dwindled to a shocking 300,000. Their homes are becoming invaded

By Ashley Rodriguez In 2011, authorities seized more than 23 metric tons of ivory. This number equals about 2,500 elephants. Recently, PETA has been joined by actor Leonardo DiCaprio in helping the elephants. For information on how to help, log on to
