Help WWF protect elephants in the wild.

Due to habitat loss and fragmentation, and major elephant-human conflict in areas where forest has been converted for agricultural use, the Borneo pygmy elephant is now in danger of extinction and WWF estimates that there are as few as 1,500 individuals pygmy elephants remaining in the wild

The single most important cause of the decline of the Asian elephant has been the loss of habitat.

Over the last 40 years, Sabah, home to the pygmy elephant in Borneo, has lost about 40% of its forest cover to plantations and human settlement.
