The Orphans of Poaching

Poachers are devastating our planet’s elephant populations. For instance, in 2009, over half of Tanzania’s elephants were killed by poachers. This is the sort of problem a lot of people think, “well if it gets REALLY bad someone will do something about it.” Well, the problem is REALLY bad, and something must be done before it’s too late.

One way you can help is by spreading the message that elephants are at serious risk of going extinct in our lifetimes. There are many incredible organizations working day and night to protect these magnificent mammals, and many document their efforts on social and video. Below is an exceptional example of messaging from our friends at the African Wildlife Foundation.

Do your part by sharing this video on social!
