Elephants are threatened by habitat lost, but most of all - by being hunted for their ivory. Learn more about these amazing animals that help the world around them:
The presence of African elephants helps to maintain suitable habitats for a myriad other species. In central African forests, up to 30 percent of tree species may require elephants to help with dispersal and germination. They play a pivotal role in shaping their habitat because of the enormous impact they have on factors ranging from fresh water to forest cover. (WWF)
