More than 12,000 elephants are poached each year.
It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: I love elephants.
Today, I found this infographic on WWF‘s facebook page and thought you, dear elephant readers, would find it worth checking out and sharing.
More ways we can help (via WWF):
>> Don’t buy ivory products. Illegal trade in elephant ivory is a continuing problem, posing one of the greatest threats to elephants today.
>> Use and support sustainable palm oil. By purchasing certified sustainable palm oil, retailers, traders and manufacturers can help limit the conversion of Asian elephant habitat into oil palm plantations. Consumers can also help by demanding that products contain only sustainable palm oil.
