Sparing Space

Reconnecting fragmented habitat to expand protected areas.

Over decades, unique landscapes across Asia have been fragmented, degraded and vital biodiversity lost due to a range of threats. Once covered in dense forest, large sections of elephant ranges have been logged, converted for tea, coffee, rubber and palm oil plantations, or cleared for livestock.

The conservation of protected areas across this region is not only important for the elephants and other animals it harbours, but to safeguard economic growth, social stability and the quality of life for people.

Lead by a network of dedicated conservationists, our work to expand and reconnect protected areas takes a combination of diplomacy, science and persistence.
