No Elephants Have Been Killed By Poachers In Africa's Top Wildlife Park For Over A Year

This is an extraordinary triumph! One of the largest wildlife parks in Africa, Niassa Reserve, is marking a complete year without finding a single elephant found killed by poachers. The last time an elephant killed by poachers at the Niassa Reserve was May 17, 2018. This incredible turnaround is largely due to the more assertive police force, patrolling, and response by air, according to New-York-based Wildlife Conservation Society. 

A year ago, James Bampton, county director with the Wildlife Conservation Society, estimated that there were less than 2,000 elephants remaining in Niassa, and now with a preliminary analysis of date from a survey in October, Mr. Bampton indicates there are about 4,000 elephants in the reserve! 

Mr. Bampton told ABC News that the elephants in the reverse "stand a genuine chance for recovery."
