This website was made by Meredith Eitland and Maya Wallace. It is based on poaching, illegally killing plants and animals. To the poacher we say cruel, evil, monstrous. To the stop poaching programs we say hurrah, bravo, splendid. We want to tell you this is not right, no one should have the right to do this. Poaching is threatening rare and endangered animals like chimpanzees, gorillas, forest elephants,antelopes, monkeys, and birds. In 1977 1.3 million elephants lived in Africa, But only 600,000 were recorded in 1997. But people still poach because they feels some kind of power and authority.
