Every 15 minutes, an elephant is killed.
Each day, two to three rhino are slaughtered.
At least one tiger a day is butchered.
Of course there's no way to tell how many people die as a result from the poaching and trade, directly or indirectly through funding of the other lucrative crime it supports.
With far-reaching consequences to human and animal life, as well as the environment, we as individuals need to demand our governments bring an end to the organizations behind this tragedy. Once our animals go extinct, it won't be long until it is our turn.
