African elephants are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), while the Asian elephant is classified as endangered. They are slaughtered with impunity for their ivory – their tusks --, which are their elongated incisors. Illegal trade puts the species at risk. 60% of sales of this pattern will go to elephant protection and conservation.
