We will relocate elephants from areas where they are in danger due to human-elephant conflicts, environmental challenges, inhumane treatment, or poachers.
Not only is poaching a serious problem but also the rise of human-elephant conflicts especially in large population growth areas in India and South East Asia is on the rise. Additionally, the impact of environmental changes which have limited elephants’ access to food and water have caused an increase in confrontations with humans as they invade their crops. But geopolitical conflicts have also led to an increase in these conflicts as refugees are forced into the elephants natural habitat. Our efforts are currently focused in Southeast Asia.
| Relocate government and private owned timber elephants who are in high poaching areas and who are being used as performance animals to other parts of the country or to a Cambodian sanctuary – where they are focused on working to repopulate the species in the country which has been decimated by landmines and other conflict.
| Relocate elephants that are along the Bangladesh/Myanmar boarder where the increased exodus and settlement of the Rohingya has caused a drastic increase in human-elephant conflicts.
| Relocate elephants near Myanmar’s Andaman beaches where new commercial developments are threating their habitat and increasing the likelihood of their death caused by human-elephant conflicts.
