Bornean Elephant Conservation - No Easy 'Tusk'

As far as Dr Nurzhafarina Othman is concerned, to ensure the survival of Bornean elephants, people need to understand that we need to co-exist with them. An elephant ecologist and founder of NGO Seratu Aatai, Dr Farina and her team try to find ways for people and wildlife to co-exist peacefully, and to avoid human-elephant conflicts, both inside and outside of protected areas in Sabah. She joins us for a 101 on this smallest Asian elephant subspecies -  classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as endangered - and to discuss her work towards ensuring their long-term survival.
