The image of January 25, 2016 Elephant
For millennia, man hunted elephants for food and for the trade in ivory taken from tusks. During antiquity, Nubian elephants were used in the armies of the Carthaginians. In the 5th century BC. AD, there were still elephants on the banks of the Euphrates, where Pharaoh Thutmose 1st hunted elephants.
The population of African and Asian elephants was decimated, dropping from several million individuals in the early 1970s to a few hundred thousand 30 years later. So much so that in 1989, CITES prohibited the trade in ivory. Elephants are now considered protected species and elephant hunting is highly regulated.
Poaching unfortunately intensifies every year. In 2011, between 25,000 and 30,000 elephants were savagely slaughtered in order to recover their tusks and supply illegal trade, particularly from Asia.
The elephant has no real predators except humans. Big cats such as the lion or the tiger can exercise predation on small and weak individuals, but given the number of herbivores that are easier to hunt, there is little chance that these predators will fall back on the elephant, way too big.
