    DECLINING ELEPHANT

    In Central Africa, the total population of forest elephants declined by 62% between 2002 and 2011. Declines have been devastating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where warfare, the proliferation of weapons and trading in ivory to fuel rebel factions have resulted in the loss of 80% of elephants (80,000 elephants) since 1970.

    Elephants in Captivity

    Elephants destined for the tourist industry experience great physical and mental trauma. Isolation, starving, hitting and beating are just some of the methods used to initially break their spirits and get them to behave and perform.”

    There are some 3,500 captive elephants in India and the majority of them are used for elephant rides by Western tourists.
