Asian elephants once roamed across most of Asia, now they’re restricted to just 15% of their original range, in a number of fragmented and isolated populations around south and south-east Asia.
Asian elephants are not quite as big as their African cousins, and have proportionally smaller ears. They’re generally dark grey to brown but often have pink or yellow marks on their face, ears and trunk.
Female Asian elephants are more social than males. They live in herds with their female relatives. Males usually live alone but sometimes form small groups with other males.
Living in some of the most densely populated parts of the world has brought challenges – Asian elephant numbers have roughly halved in the last three elephant generations. We need your help to make them thrive again.
