The Elephant Crisis
The number of elephants in Africa has plummeted in little over a century from approximately 10 million to less than half a million today - a decrease of 95%. Elephants continue to be illegally killed (poached) for their tusks - modified teeth - made of ivory. In the past ivory was fashioned into ornaments and exported to be made into piano keys, brush handles, billiard balls, combs, name seals (hankos) and also used as inlay and for intricate carvings. Today, the legal trade in ivory has been shut down, but there is still an illegal trade run by criminals.
