ELEPHANTS & IVORY

ELEPHANTS & IVORY

Modern elephants are the last surviving members
of a once diverse and widely distributed group
of mammals known as proboscideans. Only
some three species remain, and they are either
threatened or endangered.
Our objectives, in preparing this booklet, were
to sort through the copious and often conflicting
and confusing information available on modern
elephants, present the facts as they are currently
known, and discuss some of the issues that
continue to hinder elephant conservation today.
