    The Elephant Crisis

     
    Tanzania has seen a dramatic drop in its elephant populations. Some estimates range from 1/2 to 2/3rds of the total population is now lost. The trade in their ivory tusks usually finds it route ending Asia where the ivory is carved for various artworks. Tanzania started a task force team late last year to crack down on the illegal trade in ivory, but after officials received reports of murder and rape, the force was recently stopped.
    So now as some parks are reporting as high as an 80% drop in their elephant populations, Tanzania along with the world is wondering what to to do next.
