Conservationists to create blueprint for saving Malaysia's elephants
Date:11/28/2012

ion with all the major stakeholders."

Recent elephant surveys conducted by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks in collaboration with WCS in the forests of Peninsular Malaysia have found that the region still contains significant numbers of elephants; One landscapeTaman Negara National Parkcontains an estimated 631 elephants, the largest known wild elephant population in Southeast Asia.

The huge potential for elephant conservation in Malaysia stems in part from the Central Forest Spine initiative, a centralized plan implemented in 2007 that has succeeded in protecting native forests from uncoordinated land clearance for agricultural purposes. One particular threat to these forests came from monoculture plantations, which would affect the movements of elephants through habitat fragmentation and potentially causes human-elephant conflicts. The participants hope to formulate practical and sustainable solutions for maintaining vital corridors for elephants and other wide-ranging species.

Other elephant conservation and research work with various partners in Peninsular Malaysia include human-elephant conflict mitigation, surveys with the assistance of indigenous trackers, and satellite-collar tracking in partnership with Nottingham University.
