- Asian elephants are classed as critically endangered and there about 2800 left in the world.
- They are affected by habitat loss and fragmentation, illegal wildlife trade and human wildlife conflict.
- Asian elephant numbers have roughly halved in the last three elephant generations.
- Asian elephants once roamed across most of Asia, now they’re restricted to just 15% of their original range.
- Elephants are very important grazers and browsers, eating vast amounts of vegetation every day, spreading seeds around as they go. They also help shape the often-thick vegetation of the Asian landscape.
