Health Editor’s Note: West African elephant tusks were analyzed to determine what specific herds the elephants came from. At the time of the harvest of the tusks, reclaimed from the ship wreck from 500 years ago, there was evidence of 17 herds where now there are only 4 herds. If we did not believe that elephants are in great peril, this is proof that elephants have been disappearing for hundreds of years. Let’s hope we can stop their destruction before they are gone from the face of the earth…..Carol
