Elegunt (Loxodonta africanus armatii) by 


An estimated 100 wild African elephants are slaughtered for their ivory tusks each day (on average). Their massacre is driving them toward extinction and is fueled by an insatiable demand for ivory from Asia (particularly China, Vietnam, and Thailand). The ivory is used to carve intricate figurines and other home decor items — and even cell phone covers and vehicle detail add-ons. It is viewed as a status symbol in consumer nations.

It’s possible (though extremely unlikely) that elephants could one day evolve AK-47 trunks to fight off their murderers. However, we humans can evolve to stop the slaughter MUCH faster… wouldn’t you agree?

Wildlife biologist, artist, writer, and general misanthropist who had to find a way to make some $ before ending up living naked in the woods, eating berries and wiping my butt with newspaper articles about Jersey Shore (not that those are bad things, but I wouldn’t be able to continue my work for wildlife!). I’m a sarcastic person, so I hope other sarcastic peeps will like what I put out :)
