As we know African American elephants are endangered and poachers are killing them for their tusks because they are worth a lot of money. Today since the demand for ivory is 80% which is really high, poachers are killing more than ever. The value of ivory used to be $546.00 per pound and now its almost tripled to $1,322.00 per pound! In 1990 international trade in ivory was banned but, however poaching still continues.
