The African elephant is not considered to be endangered right now. Their actual status now is “vulnerable” which means that even though there are only a few that are available, their population is increasing because of the way that human beings have started to create programs that can improve their population. African elephants are known to be majestic creatures.

There is a slight problem though, the African Bush Elephant’s population may be increasing, but the African forest elephant’s numbers have been decreasing because of poaching. There are more rules about it right now to stop this animal from being extinct potentially.

African elephants are listed as being threatened under the American Endangered Species Act. Therefore, the answer is yes, and why that is so is due to the poaching that is taking place on these majestic creatures.

African elephants are listed as being threatened under the American Endangered Species Act.

They are continually being sought after by poachers, who hunt them down for one reason, and that is for their precious ivory tusks, unfortunately.
