Study: 20,000 elephants poached in Africa in 2013

In this photo supplied by the International Fund For Animal Welfare, an orphaned elephant calf, one of two, is introduced to an adult at the Game Rangers International Release Facility near Lusaka, Zambia. The two calves, whose parents were killed by poachers, are to be integrated with the resident orphan herd and later released.
