Human and Elephant Conflict in Sumatra

In Sumatra, elephant populations are rapidly decreasing. Their decline is primarily a result of deforestation, leaving only 29% of the island still habitable for elephants, leaving them in isolated patches close to humans. The relationship is tense and all — out war between human and elephant is becoming a regular occurrence, often ending in the loss of lives to both.
