TSAVO EAST, KENYA - MAY 18: Images of some of the last of the great Elephant tuskers in Africa, taken in Tsavo East May 18, 2011. Massive elephant poaching in recent years has seen most of the mature bull elephant population of African countries decimated for their ivory. A Tusker is defined as an elephant with a set of 100 pound ivory tusks, or therabouts. This depletion of the elephant gene pool is having a negative effect on populations, with weak dna being passed on instead of the strongest.  (Photo by Brent Stirton/Reportage by Getty Images)
