Threatened species of Elephantidae

Other Names:
Threatened species of Elephants
Elephants under threat of extinction
Elephants have been hunted and poached for their ivory tusks. Much of their habitat has been lost due to conversion into agricultural areas and human dwellings, causing fragmentation of the habitat and preventing elephants from migrating between feeding and water sites.
Ivory prices are $200 per kilo and the average tusk is 5 kg.
