__FACEBOOK_DETAILS__African elephants are the world’s largest terrestrial animals. Once common throughout Africa, elephant numbers were severely depleted in the 19th century, largely due to the massive ivory trade. While some populations are now stable, poaching and habitat destruction continue to threaten the species. If conservation action is not forthcoming, elephants may become locally eradicated in some parts of Africa within 50 years.
