Project Description

Reducing Threats to Elephants and Mitigating Human-Elephant Conflict in the Core Habitat of the Cardamom Mountain Landscape

Habitat loss and degradation threaten Asian elephant populations in Cambodia as natural habitat is converted to economic land concessions, both inside and adjacent to protected areas. The goal of this project is to secure the landscape and habitat for Asian elephants in the southern Cardamoms Mountains Landscape of Cambodia and to ensure conservation efforts of this core population are strategic, effective and adaptive. Additionally, this project supports communities and government in mitigating human-elephant conflict which will result in the strengthened ability to conserve the Asian elephant and its habitat in a strategic and coordinated manner.
