Elephants of Sumatra

The Elephants of Sumatra are currently listed as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List. Every day their population is under increasing threat from habitat destruction through illegal logging and expanding oil palm concessions as well as the threat of poaching.

Elephants of Sumatra is a project developed to document, raise awareness and provide solutions on the ground in Sumatra for the last remaining elephants of Sumatra.

As we work towards solutions for the last remaining elephants of Sumatra we hope others can join us in helping save this incredible species from extinction.
