Cardamom Mountains Elephant Survey

Background

Cambodia's elephant population is worryingly small and fragmented. With increasing habitat loss and fragmentation, human-elephant conflict is rising in many areas and emerging in areas where there was previously none.

Beyond direct threats, elephant conservation in Cambodia is limited by the lack of understanding of the species' conservation needs. More efforts needs to be done to assess the actual size of the elephant population in order to better aid future monitoring and elephant management.
