How Many Elephants Are Killed Each Year?

Answer

Up to 5 per cent of Africa’s elephants are being slaughtered for their ivory each year. In 2005, 23,000 elephants were killed. The number of African elephants decreased from 1.3 million in 1979 to 600,000 in 1989, when an international convention banned the trade of ivory. The population now stands at about 500,000.
