As few as 1,500 Borneo pygmy elephants left in the wild
Palm oil plantations are increasingly encroaching on the elephants' paths forcing them to enter the farmland of local communities. Many locals make a living from farming, so the subsequent destruction of their crops can be devastating.
Your adoption will help WWF work to better protect and manage key elephant habitat while enabling agriculture, forestry and other forms of land-use in a clearly planned and sustainable manner.
Adopt today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about Asian elephants through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly adopters. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for these precious animals.
