Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre was established in 1989 to rescue Asian elephants whose habitats are being lost to cultivation or development. The centre also aims to raise public awareness and support research.
It is estimated that there are only 1, 200 wild Asian elephants, also known as Elephus Maximus, left in Malaysia. In the past 25 years, the staff have helped to prevent the further decrease of the elephant population by relocating over 400 wild elephants back into the wild.
