Iowa Scientist To Obama: Save The Elephant

The majestic African elephant — a creature that mesmerizes people young and old — is disappearing at an alarming rate. A new study of forest elephants found that more than half of them have died over the past decade, with their numbers down by 62 percent between 2002 and 2011. The study by the Wildlife Conservation Society comes as governments and conservationists are meeting in Thailand to discuss changes in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.
