The African Elephant occurs in 37 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, & in the arid deserts of Namibia & Mali. The total population is believed to have suffered a decline due to poaching for ivory & meat, which has been the major threat to this species. The loss & fragmentation of habitat caused by human population expansion & rapid conversion is currently perceived to be the most important threat.
