World Elephant Day 2018: Coexistence for Conservation
Wong Ee Phin, Co-Investigator | Lim Teck Wyn, PhD Candidate, Management & Ecology of Malaysian Elephants (MEME)
The concept of “human-wildlife conflict” is becoming central to conservation work, but the mitigation of these conflicts are also said to be one of the greatest challenges for conservation of wildlife worldwide. In conjunction with World Elephant Day, which is celebrated annually on the 12th of August, we take a closer look at how human-elephant conflict plays a role in the decline of elephant numbers, and discuss ways that people and elephants can share space. Joining us to discuss this and more are Wong Ee Phin and Lim Teck Wyn, from the organisation Management & Ecology of Malaysian Elephants (MEME).
