The Endangered Asian Elephant'
In the past 100 years 90% OF THE WORLDS ASIAN ELEPHANTS HAVE DISAPPEARED. IN ANOTHER 30 YEARS THEY COULD EASILY VANISH ALTOGETHER THEY ARE SIMPLY RUNNING OUT OF SPACE AND TIME
With a remaining global population of perhaps as few as 30,000 scattered across 13 different countries, the endangered Asian elephant is threatened by severe habitat loss and subsequent conflict with people, as well as poaching. They live in a greater range of habitats than any other mammal besides humans, and have been described as the “creative power of nature” on account of the vital role that they play in shaping and sustaining the richness of their habitats. Elephant landscapes are also some of the largest target areas there are for conservation, and saving these would benefit countless other species. As such, and in order to have as substantial and lasting on impact on biodiversity conservation as possible, Asian elephants are the flagship species for both Elephant Family and Jungle City.
