Peaceful Pygmy Elephant Protection
gray, brown, and black.
Threats and solutions
Habitat loss and conflict with humans
gives birth about every 4 to 6 years
scientific name- Elephas Maximus Borneenis
Role in the Ecosystem
Tropical rainforest biome
7 to 10 feet
Large ears, long tail, and straight
3,000 to 5,000 kg
Smallest known subspecies of elephants
Other related organisms are African Elephants, Mastodons (extinct), and Woolly Mammoths (extinct).
The tropical rainforest biome has a tropical wet climate, insects make up its largest single animal group, and 40 to 100 different species are in 2.5 acres of the tropical rainforest.
Strict migration patterns that are determined by monsoon season.
Fewer than 1,500 Borneo Pygmy Elephants distributed in the tropical rainforest biome.
22 month gestation period
1 elephant is born at a time
Parents care for their offspring for 5 years
Other organisms in the Borneo Pygmy Elephant's ecosystem include Borneo Pythons, Clouded leopards, and Papaya Trees.
the WWF is working with plantation managers and owners in Borneo Pygmy Elephant habitats in an effort to create reforested wildlife corridors that allow elephants and other species to move freely between natural forests.
To save this species, I believe that the main thing we must do is lower the conflict between Borneo Pygmy Elephants and humans. To do that we should advertise the adoption of safe lowland forests and think of ways to condense the amount of land we need to use.
