The poaching of elephant in Africa

The poachers in many African countries resort to poaching because of lack of opportunities like decent job, good education ,despite there are many anti-poaching units in Africa , they are not able to stop the bleeding until now ,but it is not an easy task to do as the poachers are ready to use weapons (guns ,machetes )to defend themselves ,and their territory .
This illegal and despicable trade has decimated the park’s elephant population. The non-profit group African Parks has estimated that Central Africa has lost 62% of its forest elephant population in the last decade; you can hardly see elephants there, after these years of carnage without any sanction and punishment ,we can say many African officials sometimes turn a blind eye on this issue ,simply because they are bribed ,regardless of jeopardy caused to the environmental balance and equilibrium .
