About Anna

Adopt Anna

Anna is part of a herd of about 30 elephants and shares much of her time and home range with Cinta and Ginting. Anna was collared for the first time in July 2012. After losing her GPS in 2013 Anna was monitored by field teams via direct tracking before she was re-collared in July 2013.

There are several calves and juveniles of all ages in Anna's herd, indicating healthy natural population growth. However, Anna and her herd live in a challenging area for the Elephant Conservation and Monitoring Units (ECMU) to protect them. Their home range overlaps with a variety of different land-use types which create a patchwork of natural forest mixed with production forest, commercial plantations, small-scale farming land and coal mining areas. 

 

The area does provide excellent feeding grounds in form of secondary forest patches with rich undergrowth, but does not include large connected natural forests. As a consequence of the fragmented habitat, Anna and her herd frequently come into conflicts with people, especially with farmers planting oil palms and other crops which are all very attractive to elephants. Constant monitoring and safeguarding is necessary to protect both Anna and local communities from negative impacts that the overlap of traditional elephant territory and more recent human activities is causing.
