Two species of elephants in Africa are under a lot of trouble. Savanna elephants and forest elephants populations have been declining in the past decades. The forest elephants are critically endangered—that’s the category right before extinction in the wild. Poaching is a big concern. People are killing elephants for their ivory tusks. Humans are also moving into the elephants habitats, making it harder for the animals to find food and water. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is calling for urgent action to end poaching. The director says forest and savannah habitats must be restored.
