In May 2013, an elephant massacre took place at what was once considered the best-protected site in Central Africa at Dzanga Bai in the Dzanga Ndoki National Park in the Central African Republic. WCS field biologist Andrea Turkalo, who has watched over the forest clearing of Dzanga Bai for more than 20 years, reflects on what this means for the future of African elephants.

96 Elephants

Last year, some 35,000 elephants were killed for their ivory. At that rate, 96 elephants are killed every day in Africa. The Wildlife Conservation Society, founded in 1895, has the clear mission to save wildlife and wild places around the world. The elephant crisis demands a global movement. Please join us. WCS
