Conservation status

Asian Elephant (Elephas maximus) is on the IUCN list of Threatened Species – status: Endangered

Major threaths: The pre-eminent threats to the Asian elephant today are habitat loss, degradation, and fragmentation, which are driven by an expanding human population, and lead in turn to increasing conflicts between humans and elephants when elephants eat or trample crops. Poaching is a major threat to elephants in Asia too (Source IUCN -see above)
