Wildlife is in crisis with numbers declining dramatically

The illegal wildlife trade, the destruction of habitats and retaliatory killings now threaten the survival of many of the world’s most iconic species.

Maybe we will have to accept a world without rhinos, elephants, tigers, gorillas, snow leopards and orang-utans in the wild.

The Tiger population now numbers less than 3,200.

Poaching of rhinos in South Africa has increased by 9,300% in the last 8 years.

Snow leopard numbers have declined by 20% in the last 20 years.

There are only 880 mountain gorillas left.

Ivory-seeking poachers have killed 100,000 African elephants in just three years.

In only a few decades orang-utan numbers have declined by 50%.

At what point do we say enough is enough and take action?
