On 31 January 2017 National Geographic reported:
Poaching has ravaged Africa's elephants, largely to feed the appetite for ivory in China and elsewhere in Asia. In 2002 Chad's Zakouma National Park was home to more than 4,000 elephants, but by 2010 that figure had plummeted to a mere 400 - a 90 percent drop. Experts predicted that Zakouma's remaining elephants would be gone within two or three years. Desperate for a solution, in 2010 the Chadian government called in African Parks, a South Africa-based nonprofit that specializes in rehabilitating failing protected areas around the continent. Rian and Lorna Labuschagne, who took over management of the park, have turned things around. Under their watch poaching has been dramatically reduced, and the elephant population is growing for the first time in years. Zakouma is now home to more than 500 elephants, believed to be the largest remaining herd in Africa.
