A new report by WWF claims that as many as two thirds of the worlds wildlife could be extinct by the end of the decade if action is not taken immediately. Since 1970, 58 per cent of the numbers of fish, mammals, birds and reptiles have already disappeared says the latest bi-annual Living Planet Index commissioned by WWF. If that figure is accurate, it means that wildlife across the planet is disappearing at the rate of 2 per cent a year.
The illegal poaching of African elephants which has grown rapidly since 2006 seems to be slowing down and may even be decreasing.

Some experts reckon the reason behind the decline in poaching is there are fewer elephants alive.
