There are several reasons why the African elephant is an endangered species. Urban expansion is encroaching on the natural habitat. Poaching is a major reason. They are poached for ivory tusks. Also, local Africans kill elephants for meat. In Africa elephant meat is a delicacy and is often consumed.
Another reason is competition for resources such as land, food, water and so on. Ivory can sell for a big price especially to a dealer who doesn't care where it came from.
Elephant calves are often orphaned and so don't grow up nurtured by kin,and can be killed also.
Some African countries would like the ban on ivory sales to be lifted in order to sell off stockpiled ivory from poachers, but they were outvoted earlier this year by Kenya and other countries, and the Ban remains.
