From 2008 to 2013, only four percent of convictions for wildlife crimes in Kenya resulted in jail time. More recently, convictions have resulted in fines of over $200,000 or significant jail time. These tough sentences are critical in the fight to protect Africa's natural heritage: http://bit.ly/1ZFMdvB

Addressing human-wildlife conflict is critical to conservation success. Amboseli's lions have rebounded from 10 in 2009 to 135 today, in large part because communities are now engaged in conservation efforts: http://trib.in/1TPnOC0

Poaching is taking a toll on the gene pool of Africa's elephants.

See what challenges an elephant can face if it goes through life tuskless: http://bit.ly/going-tuskless

*It's a troubling day for rhinos as a South Africa court lifts the ban on domestic rhino horn trade: http://bit.ly/1OKYvwX*

AWF President Kaddu Sebunya explains why this is a dangerous move, saying "For the past 20 years there has been an on-going trade experiment with ivory to see if a stable and sustainable market could be established. The results of that experiment can be seen today, as elephant poaching levels are higher than ever and the trade in illegal ivory flourishes. With far fewer rhinos than elephants on the continent, Africa’s rhinos cannot afford such an experiment." #rhino #SouthAfrica #StopTheTrade #conservation

A glimmer of hope in South Africa as rhino poaching slows. In the first quarter of 2016, 363 rhinos have been killed by poachers, down from 404 rhinos over the same period last year: http://bit.ly/1Tz5kmu

Chimpanzees are genetically closer to humans than to gorillas, sharing 95-98 percent of our DNA! #AWFfacts
