Yes, elephants are on the list of endangered species in 1980. Elephants were added to the international list of endangered species. In the early 1900's there were over 15 million elephants in the world but as at 1989, there were less than a million elephants in the world.

Elephants need large surroundings to survive and due to increase in population of humans, the habitat of terrestrial animals like elephants has been tampered with. Humans have become their competitors. Many forest have been turned to pastures, desert and farmland. We cut down trees for our own needs. Elephants have been regarded as pests because they attack farmlands and communities when they are on rage. These farmers kill the elephants so it does not get to their farm land.
