Who is For Elephants?

When you hear someone say elephant, what first comes to your mind? You probably think of them being grey, large and having trunks. What many people do not think of when they think of elephants is their declining rates. 

Over the last decade, elephant populations have declined by 62 percent. The decreasing rate of the world’s largest land mammals is due to many things like poachers and loss of habitat. If we do not stop the decreasing rates, we could see these magnificent creatures go extinct.
