Elephant tusks are just like our human nails made out of tightly compressed hair. Around 40,000 elephants are killed every year from poaching.

Where are people coming from to poach? They are from China and Russia. In fact people are coming from all over Asia.

What are people doing it for? They use the ivory to make jewellery and small statues

Elephant tusks are being sold for a lot of money.
