Asian Elephants in Peril

(Earth Focus: Episode 58) In Sumatra, Indonesia, as their last forest habitat is being logged to make way for palm oil plantations, elephants are pushed into conflict with local people. On the Thai-Myanmar border, elephant calves and young females are removed from their forest homes every year and are traded illegally to supply tourist camps. Many die in the process. These original investigative reports are produced in collaboration with The Ecologist Film Unit and Elephant Family.
