  • Elephants are the world's-largest land mammals. African elephant males are the biggest of the bunch, weighing in at up to six tonnes, while smaller Asian elephants can still tip the scales at five tonnes.
     
  • In Africa, there are an estimated 415,000 elephants left. The species is regarded as vulnerable in the IUCN list, however certain populations are being poached towards extinction. Asian elephant numbers have dropped by at least 50 per cent over the last three generations, and they’re still in decline today. With only 40,000 to 50,000 left in the wild, the IUCN has classified the species as endangered.
     
  • Both African and Asian elephants play a vital role in their ecosystems as well as contributing towards tourism and community incomes in many areas. So by helping protect elephants, we are helping conserve their habitat, supporting local communities, and making sure natural resources are available for generations to come.
