Back in the turn of the 20th century, there were a million African elephants in their natural habitat but because of the many changes that have occurred in the world and the different things that human beings do, the number of African elephants, as well as other animals, have already dwindled. There are only about 450,000 to 700,000 African elephants right now.

There are even fewer Asian elephants right now since most of them have been used in order to entertain people. Most animals that are not in the wild have died sadly because of the torture that they have experienced while they were in captivity. It is said that the number of elephants in Africa has dwindled significantly over the past years.
