Initially, this paper will explore the major conditions affecting African elephant populations, the deleterious relationship between these animals and humans, and what is necessary to strike a balance for successful coexistence. The focus will then move towards an examination of the federal agencies that the United States charges with carrying out laws specific to the African elephant and the international organizations and treaties the United States is involved with to perpetuate the existence of the species. The analyses below demonstrate the need for different strategies to achieve long-term, effectual solutions to sustain the African elephant and our continued relations with the species.
