An Article on Elephant Poaching

We are living during the Sixth Extinction, a time in which we are losing species daily as a result of human activity and loss of habitat.

A precipitous decline in the African elephant population continues, and it breaks my heart. It is possible that in the lifetimes of readers of this post–including me–that the African elephant will be essentially extinct in the wild.

Poaching of elephants continues. Click here to read an article in The Planet Magazine by Nanette Jackson on elephant poaching.

I met Nanette and her friend Austin yesterday. What a kind pair of people!

The Planet Magazine is an excellent environmental journal out of Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington.

All the best, Andrew
