The Asian elephant is declining throughout its range and nearing extinction in the wild in many of the thirteen countries where it lives. The threat of poaching, habitat loss and increasing cases of human/elephant conflict requires extensive investment into anti-poaching programs, government liaison, community education and the establishment of good practices to protect the second largest land animal from extinction.

Working in partnership with Fauna and Flora International in Cambodia, Wildlife Warriors invests in a range of strategies to prevent the destruction of elephant habitat and helps local villages to co-exist with these majestic animals. Supporting farmers is the key to mitigating human-elephant conflict and which has allowed the development of alternative livelihood strategies within the program.
