Elephants are one of the beauties of wildlife and they should be protected by all means possible. While there are people spending sleepless nights wondering how to protect the elephant species in Africa, there are so many people who are always planning ways through which they will kill these elephants and get the tasks or the ivory. This becomes a threat to the elephants that are in Africa and to the entire wildlife. Therefore, you need to be in the frontline of fighting elephant killings and this will be possible where you join ventures with organizations that are established to protect elephants. There are ways through which you will get involved and these ways are jotted down in this article.
The rates for elephant killings are skyrocketing and there is always need for you to comprehend these rates hence saying no to the killings. Generally, only some few countries in Africa have elephants. Decades ago, the number of elephants was at a million plus but this number has reduced drastically to some thousands which is very saddening. Even if these elephants are reproducing the killing rate is extensively high and if the rate retains the same speed, there will be no elephants to protect years to come. Therefore, you should be in the frontline of saying no to elephant killing. This means that you are never part and parcel of dealings that will directly or indirectly contribute to elephants being killed.
The reason why there is an increased number of elephant killings is due to the increased demand for ivory. The demand is always proportionate to the killings. Populaces need to abhor animal trafficking and this is where a person gets to settle for the legal ways of doing things. Therefore, people that are trading ivory are trafficking it through the black markets which is very illegal.
Many people love ivory carvings as they have a state of art and they are long-lasting. It is where you say no to owning and having ivory products and carvings that you become a loyal ambassador of protecting elephants. It is therefore a fact to note that elephants will be facing less threats where there is no demand for ivory in the market whatsoever.
The last but not the least, you have a chance of joining hands with this non-profit making organizations that protect elephants through your kind donations. Therefore, availing your charitable donation and contribution to these organizations helps them find their errands and their activities and efforts into preserving the wildlife and protecting elephants in particular.
