African Wildlife Foundation

Tomorrow is the last day in the Firefox Challenge!

BENEFITING: African Wildlife Foundation

EVENT: Mozilla Firefox Challenge

Mileage Tracker: 100

THE STORY:

Just before dawn, a profound quiet falls over the African savannah...and as the first glimmer of light approaches, many of the night's hunters are still—except for one.

When the shots ring out and the earth shakes with the fall of the bull elephant, the matriarch runs, trumpeting her fear and outrage. She turns to gather her herd, including six calves, behind her. Trunks lifted, they face their attackers...but only one single female survived that morning's slaughter in Kenya's Tsavo East National Park. 

The matriarch, her children, and two youngsters with small tusks were no match for the poachers armed with AK-47 and G3 rifles.

----

The Facts:

  • Poachers are attacking and killing elephants for profit
     
  • 8 of 10 elephants are killed for their ivory
  • Tens of thousands of elephants are slaughtered for their tusks every year
  • On average, 1 park ranger is killed per week trying to protect wildlife against poaching
     
  • The number of elephants in Africa today is only about half of what it was estimated to be just 40 years ago
     
  • The illegal wildlife trade is a booming black market business, worth more than $10 billion annually
     
  • Poachers use helicopers, AK-47s, powerful veterinary drugs, and more to kill elephants and the rangers protecting them
     
  • At this rate, elephants won't survive 10 years in the wild

You can help AWF win $50,000 in the Firefox challenge to combat the ivory trade.
