Indeed more and more elephants are becoming endangered nowadays. Africa, in particular has experienced a continent-wide decline in the number of elephants in just the last few decades. In fact between 1979 and 1989, nearly half of Africa’s elephants were hunted and/or killed for ivory. The expansion of human population is another problem that poses risks to endangering elephants as human settlements limit an elephant’s range of movement. With less food sources available due to this expansion, some elephants have begun to resort to raiding crops. This raiding of crops has often led to many fatalities as farmers defending their livelihoods and their crops have taken this matter quite seriously.
