The World Wildlife Foundation has raised concern over plummeting elephant populations in Mozambique.

An aerial survey showed ivory poaching is decimating herds in the country.

The WWF have estimated thatΒ Β 480 and 900 elephants died in the northern Querimbas reserve between 2011 and 2013.

The landscape survey of the Quirimbas National Park conducted in late 2013 found that almost half the elephants sighted from the air were carcasses.

Most were likely killed by ivory poachers.
