At current poaching rates, elephants may be extinct in the wild in as little as 10 years.

Thanks to horrific poaching trends, lions are now extinct in seven African countries.


Between 1960 and the mid-1990s, the black rhino population dipped dangerously, by 97.6 percent.


Approximately 100,000 elephants were slaughtered by poachers for ivory between 2010 and 2012

Lions could be gone as soon as 2050, according to some predictions

In the last decade, over 7,000 rhinos have been poached for their horns in South Africa alone
