African elephant! One of the most amazing creatures on earth. Three species of elephants are currently recognized the African bush, the African forest elephant and the Asian elephant. They were once common throughout Africa and Asia, elephant numbers were severely depleted during the 20th century, largely due to the massive ivory trade. While some areas are stable, poaching is still a great threat as well as habitat destruction. With every elephant shirt sold a proceed will go to David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and help them directly.
