Estasia Lal's curator insight, February 7, 9:56 PM

I found this article very interesting because I love every animal and do not want to see any go extinct. I do not like the fact that the demand for ivory is very high even though there can be alternatives. I think something can be done to save not only these elephants but every other animals that are going extinct.

This article could be bias especially because of the website it is from but I still believe that these beautiful animals should not be disappearing in the large numbers that they are. Especially because Tanzania at one point, had the worlds largest elephant population. It is just sad to see that number drop drastically.
