There may be as few as 2400 Sumatran elephants still alive on the planet.

Indonesian authorities today described the incident as a “murder and a theft,” and called for a criminal investigation.
National Geographic reporter Bryan Christy commissioned two fake elephant tusks embedded with GPS, then planted them to track ivory smuggling routes from the Central African Republic into Sudan.
