African elephant’s description
I am the biggest terrestrian animal. Which does not prevent me of being fragile. For example, my skin is very sensitive, I take mud baths in order to protect it from the sun.
3 to 4 meters
Up to 6 tons !
Where do I live ?
I live in 37 african countries. One of my specie lives in the forest and the other in savannah.
Which threats ?
When I am adult, I have no other predator but men, who hunt me to gather my ivory tusks. My meat is also consumed.
Kiwiwho’s word to save the african elephant
Even though ivory trade is forbidden, I am still hunted because of that. Fortunately, rangers are trained to protect me. Today, what threatens me the most is the loss of my territory : I am a big walker and a big eater, I need vast spaces !
You too, help us to raise awareness about african elephant’s fate !
