Bid to make sanctuary haven for Bornean elephants

2015-04-09 - Kota Kinabatangan, Malaysia

The community of Kampung Perpaduan here hopes to make the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary (LKWS) as a haven for almost 300 Bornean elephants that reside there. EU-REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) Project Manager, Dr Raymond Alfred said that it was a challenge for them to achieve that aim since LKWS was surrounded by human settlements, oil palm plantations and unprotected private lands.

Malaysia: Humans and elephants at loggerheads

2013-11-10 - Perak, Malaysia

Elephants and humans are coming into contact with each other more often in Malaysia. The areas where elephants used to roam are being built upon or used for agriculture. Some favour relocating them to a national park - but is this the right thing to do? A team from the University of Nottingham is investigating the impact of the relocation process. Certain hormones can indicate a rise in stress levels with potentially serious consequences for the animal´s health.

Orphaned elephant calf Joe is healthy and well in Sabah Zoo

2013-04-20 - Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

It was heart-wrenching looking at the picture of an elephant calf forlornly tugging at its dead mother last January at Gunung Rara.

Borneo pygmy elephant death tests lay blame on unidentified toxin

2013-04-20 - Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

After three months, officials still don´t know for certain what killed at least 14 Bornean elephants (Elephas maximus borneensis) in the Malaysian state of Sabah. However tests do indicate that the herd perished from a "caustic intoxicant," possibly ingested accidentally or just as easily intentionally poisoned. A distinct subspecies, Bornean elephants are the world´s smallest with a population that has fallen to around 2,000 on the island.
