Updates to Recent Elephant and Rhino Poaching Data

We want to give our thanks to the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) for providing PoachingFacts with detailed poaching statistics for elephants and rhinoceroses up to and through 2018. We would also like to thank Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI) for the basic data on leopard and tiger poaching in India through early 2019, as well as detailed mortality statistics for both species (through 2017), which have also been updated thanks to their respective reports. These data sets have been added to our ever-expanding database of wildlife poaching statistics and corroborate earlier statistics on file.
