Reducing Threats to Elephants and Mitigating Human-Elephant Conflict contributing to the Building National Consensus for Asian Elephant Conservation in Cambodia

Habitat loss and degradation is a significant issue for Asian elephants in Cambodia as increasing amounts of natural habitat are converted to economic land concessions throughout the country, including inside and adjacent to protected areas. The Cardamom Mountains Landscape holds a core population of Asian elephants, yet to date there have been few targeted conservation efforts and little is known about this globally important population. This project monitors Asian elephants to provide critical information to enable a monitoring program to be established to improve human-elephant coexistence, secure the landscape and habitat, ensure conservation efforts are strategic, effective and adaptive, and to inform the development of a comprehensive Asian Elephant National Action Plan.
