Poachers in Chad recently killed at least 89 elephants, the World Wildlife Fund reported on March 19, 2013, the worst incident
since more than 300 elephants were massacred in Cameroon a year earlier. The WWF says elephants face an ‘existential threat’
in Central Africa that is rooted in rising demand for ivory in countries like Thailand and China. Above, elephants in Kenya
