World Elephant Day 2020 Special - Nurturing Human-elephant Coexistence

Lim Teckwyn, Management & Ecology of Malaysian Elephants Project

World Elephant Day 2020 Special - Nurturing Human-elephant Coexistence

Humans and elephants have ‘co-existed for millenia’ in the Malay Peninsula. For his dissertation, Lim Teckwyn, from the Management & Ecology of Malaysian Elephants Project, studied human-elephant relations, from both social and ecological perspectives. In particular, he examined the intertwined histories of humans and elephants in Belum-Temengor, by exploring the history of elephants, the history of the people, and the history of the relationship between humans and elephants in this site. In conjunction with both International Day of the World's Indigenous People on August 9th, and ahead of World Elephant Day on August 12th, Teckwyn joins us to share his findings, and to offer some strategic suggestions in approaching elephant conservation in Malaysia.
