Complete Title: 
Elephants in the dust : the African elephant crisis : a rapid response assessment
IUCN Publication

The African elephant, the largest remaining land mammal on the planet, is facing the greatest crisis in decades. Reports of mass elephant killings in the media vividly illustrate the situation across many African elephant range states. This publication provides an overview of the current state of the African elephant alongside recommendations for action to ensure its protection. This report has been written in close consultation with experts and a range of sources including CITES Monitoring Illegal Killing of Elephants (MIKE) Programme, the Elephant Trade Information System (ETIS), the IUCN African and Asian Elephant Specialist Groups, and the International Consortium on Combating Wildlife Crime (ICCWC). The findings provide a clear overview of the current African elephant crisis.
