Countries get together to save African elephants

Good news for the elephants as it seems several countries have agreed to work together to help save the elephants.  Right now, there are only 500,000 African elephants left in the wild and they are considered a threatened species. According to positivenews.org, last year the African Elephant Summit that gathered together several African countries and Asian countries ( such as Vietnam, China and Malaysia) has decided to take action.

Therefore, starting from this year these countries have agreed to no longer tolerate wildlife crime, to seize ivory and to investigate the origin of the seized ivory.
