what is being done to help African elephant to survive?
There are laws so that people don't kill them for their ivory. . The law is specifically called the African Elephant Conservation Act of 1986 there is also national parks and… wildlife centres keeping these beautiful animals alive and well Apparently you don't fact check the information you pay for with all your donations. There is legal elephant hunting in 10 African countries right now(8-2010), only Kenya stopped game hunting and is now trying to import game to replace those killed by starving natives and Somali war lords in the north. Elephant hunting was, is and will be legal as long there are people willing to pay to hunt them. Hunters bring far more money to the local economies than eco-tourism and peace corp, Gov't's and locals understand this. The more reliable hunting dollar beats the photo op celebrity adoption dollar that may not even come back. Sorry to burst your bubble
they are keep on attacking them so there are less attacks.
Male elephants are very dangerous - they can often go into a state of rampage and that can mean death. Don't under estimate what these massive creatures can do.
All wild animals are dangerous. African elephants are large,they have poor eyesight, but a good sense of smell. They areprotective of their young and are relatively territori…al. If they perceive a person as a threat they will not hesitate tocharge or trample them - even if they are in a vehicle
To save elephants from extinction, environmentalists are trying toprohibit the sale of ivory. They are also asking for heavy finesand punishments for poachers.
Elephants are poached for the value of their Ivory. Poachers in Africa kill the elephants, who then sell them to the smugglers, and they sell them .
Because they are afraid they will end up like the Asian Elephants.
Many African countries, such as Botswana, are passing laws making it illegal to kill an elephant without approval of the government. More countries need to step up, though, in… order to make these laws successful. Scientists are also putting radio collars on elephants so they can check their migrating habits, so these areas can be patrolled by African police.
We can stop killing African elephants for their tusks and stop causing habitat destruction.
Yes. Most Asian and African countries have banned elephant hunting and have started ranger patrolling in the forest areas to nab poachers.
There trying to stop people from illegal hunting an killing them all.
