With World Elephant Day approaching on August 12th, Sakroots is happy to support our partner charity, Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) in their effort to spread the word about the urgent elephant poaching crisis.

African elephants are being poached to feed the illegal ivory trade. From 2002 to 2013, WCS research showed that the Central African forest elephant population dropped by 65% as a result of this poaching, and its range shrank by 30%, rendering forest elephants locally extinct across large parts of their former range. To help, WCS and its 96 Elephants campaign are working to stop the killing, stop the trafficking, and stop the demand.
