Citing from Wikipedia,

In 1979, Iain Douglas-Hamilton estimated the continental population of African elephants at around 1.3 million animals. This estimate is controversial and is believed to be a gross overestimate, but it is very widely cited and has become a de facto baseline that continues to be incorrectly used to quantify downward population trends in the species.

Are elephants in danger of extinction?

Elephants are in danger, both because they are still being hunted for the ivory of their tusks, and because available habitat for elephants is shrinking, as people use the land for other things. Elephants are not presently close to extinction, but the population is declining. Since elephants are very widely distributed in zoos, there is some possibility that a captive population will continue to exist even if the wild population dies out.
