The end of Aceh’s wild elephants

epaselect epa07732501 (26/26) Ida, a 60-year-old domesticated elephant fatally injured in the leg during a fight with a wild elephant while she was used in a program to push back the wild elephants from plantations and settlements, in Negeri Antara, Aceh, Indonesia, 12 February 2019. She has since died from her injuries. Across Aceh province on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, new plantations and a housing construction boom are threatening the natural environment, pitting humans against the already-critically endangered wild elephants in a fatal conflict which the native Sumatran pachyderm is certain to lose. The elephants’ impending extinction is palpable across the country, but nowhere more so than in Aceh, where only 500 remain in the wild. Clashes in Aceh between elephants and humans are reportedly the highest of anywhere in the country. The opening up of new palm oil plantations, illegal hunting, including for ivory, and large scale illegal logging are the main causes for the increasingly prevalent clashes between humans and elephants in Aceh. Efforts are being made by the Aceh government and the community to reduce conflicts with wild elephants, but so far with little success. One of the measures is to locate a Conservation Response Unit (CRU) in areas prone to elephant conflict. The CRU consists of several tame elephants that are trained to drive and push wild pachyderms from residential areas.

Palm Oil Culture

SOCP staff aim to rehabilitate orangutans for release into the wild, most having lost their habitat from widespread illegal logging and destruction of forest for palm oil plantations. Indonesia is the world's largest producer of Palm Oil, made from the pulp of the palm fruit, followed closely by Malaysia. Palm plantations have been built on land taken from destroyed tropical rainforest, causing the death and displacements of many species, among them the critically endangered orangutan. Palm oil is an ingredient in many products across supermarket shelves. Consumer groups are pressing end users to buy only products containing substitutes or sustainably sourced palm oil, warning species and pristine habitats are on the brink of being lost forever to humankind.
