Documenting the Individuals:

There are over 500 individuals in captive elephant camps across Sumatra. They are there due to human and elephant conflict as a result of habitat loss for the wild elephants still remaining in the jungles of Sumatra. Wild elephants that wander into villages neighboring elephant habitats are captured and placed in government camps. I want to put faces to names and introduce you to those who are directly effected by the conflict within Sumatra.
