ASIAN ELEPHANTS ARE HIGHLY THREATENED BY EXTINCTIONLess than 60,000 asian elephants in 13 asian countries are walking this earth. Thereof an estimated 25,000-32,000 are living in the wild. The lates census for elephants in Thailand of March 13, 2017, made for 3,000-3,500 elephants living in the wild and 3,471 domesticated ones. Only 100 years ago there were an estimated 150,000 elephants living in Thailand. The population decrease is so dramatic, that the asian elephants might be extinct within the next 3 generations, which are classified as endangered on the IUCN Red List of On the IUCN Red List (International Union for Conservation of Nature) he is IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™.
The natural habitat for asian elephants the forest decreased to a small fraction. As last room left available, only Nature Parks can now be a home to wild elephants. However, in these regiment areas only a limited amount of elephants are able to live.
We cannot influence the wild elephant population directly. But we can breed with our elephants. The number of domesticated elephants fell from 1950 to 2000 by 80%. However, in the last couple of years the population rose slightly and we are thrilled about every newborn calf of our herd. That is how we can contribute to the preservation of these gorgeous gentle giants.
