ENDANGERED ANIMALS

African Elephant

Critical Info, Adaptation

The African Elephants have excellent memory, which helps them remember water holes and eating places. They use their tusks to dig and their trunk to pull. (AP) The African elephant population dropped from one million to 480,000. Plants rely on elephants digestive track to germinate and canopies rely on elephants for re-growth. (AI) The main reason for the endangerment for African Elephant is , the killing of elephants for ivory. SAVING ELEPHANTS IS ALSO SAVING THE FOREST! Also, there are many other things that could be used instead of ivory. If the killing of elephants continues to happen elephant population will become completely extinct by 2020! (NG)
