African Elephant

The African Elephant is the the largest land animal and one of the most popular. Today, Africa's elephants are found only south of the Sahara Desert where as centuries ago, the African elephant inhabited most of the African continent.  The decline in elephant populations is due to several factors including range loss and poaching for ivory. Hunting of the African elephant is now banned in several countries but the most serious threat today to the African Elephant is from illegal ivory poaching.
