Project Overview

Human-elephant conflict is one of the major threats to the global population of wild Asian elephants, and the issue calls for holistic approaches to transform conflict into coexistence. Achieving Coexistence with Elephants (ACE) Project was launched for the southern landscape of Peninsular Malaysia, involving plantations in the state of Johor. This project is supported by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks and Department of Forestry of Peninsular Malaysia, and contributes to our National Elephant Conservation Action Plan and the Central Forest Spine Masterplan. This project is among the first human-elephant coexistence initiatives in Peninsular Malaysia, using a large landscape approach and involving collaboration from multi-agencies.
