The numbers are horrific. About every 15 minutes an elephant is killed. That adds up to 150,000 elephants killed in the past five years. At this rate, the African elephant could become extinct in 15 years.
To address climate change we need to leave fossil fuels in the ground. While the UK government doesn’t quite go as far as acknowledging this obvious fact, it does claim to be working to “reduce greenhouse gas emissions by investing in low-carbon energy sources”.
Conservation is crucially important. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s Red List includes more than 22,000 species threatened with extinction. For 85% of these species, habitat loss is the main problem.
