Abstract

The Bornean subspecies of Asian elephant is mainly restricted to Sabah, Malaysia. Declining revenues from logging in Sabah due to high levels of past extraction, is now leading to conversion of forests to land-uses generating greater short term revenue, such as oil palm plantations. However, such forest conversion results in habitat loss, fragmentation and increased human-elephant-conflict. Currently, 261,264 ha of central Sabah forests are being brought under a ‘multiple use forest landscape management model’. The initiative envisions various developmental activities including oil palm plantations, while attempting to conserve elephants and other biodiversity by protecting critical landscape segments and improving plantation sustainability
