African elephant

The African Elephant (Loxodonta africana) is a species of proboscidean mammal found in various regions of the African continent. It is considered the largest land animal in the world, with an average height of 3 meters and a weight that can exceed 6,000 kilograms in adult males.

There are two subspecies of African elephant: the savannah elephant and the forest elephant. The former is found mainly in the plains and savannahs of eastern and southern Africa, while the latter inhabits the tropical forests of central and western Africa. Both subspecies are in danger of extinction due to poaching and habitat loss.

African elephants are herbivorous animals that feed mainly on leaves, branches, fruits, and tree bark. Due to their large size, they require large amounts of food on a daily basis, forcing them to travel great distances to find food and water. African elephants are highly social animals that form family groups led by an adult female, known as a matriarch.

Regarding their performance in the Anthropocene, African elephants have been severely affected by human activity. Poaching for their ivory tusks, which are highly valued in some markets, has led to significant declines in the African elephant population in recent decades. In addition, habitat loss due to human expansion, forest clearing, and infrastructure construction has limited their ability to move and find food and water.

Despite these challenges, significant efforts have been made to protect African elephants. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) has banned international trade in ivory since 1989, and parks and nature reserves have been established to protect African elephants from poaching and habitat loss. . Additionally, local communities and conservationists are working together to promote peaceful coexistence between elephants and humans.
