Bouba Ndjida Elephant Slaughter
WARNING: Graphic images.

Since January of this year, more than 200 elephants have been killed for their ivory in Bouba Ndjida National Park, Cameroon. If not apprehended, the poachers will likely target elephants in other nearby parks of Northern Cameroon, Central Africa Republic, and Chad. The good news is that there is still time to improve protection at these other parks before they suffer the same fate as those in Bouba Ndjida National Park. An emergency response is now underway, with the Cameroon government mounting a military response to remove the poachers from the park.
