From the book:
"I just want to make sure there are elephants around for generations to enjoy, like I have." In 1979, the African elephant population was 1.3 million. By 1989 that total dropped dramatically to 609,000. During the 1980s, poachers killed some three hundred elephants a day.

Elephant Rescue traces the efforts of individuals and organizations that confront the international ivory trade and lobby indigenous governments to create protective environments.
