Danger lurking at their doorstep

KOTA KINABALU: The area where the seven Borneo pygmy elephants drowned in a mud pool in Sabah’s southern Kalabakan is part of the home range for satellite-collared jumbos roaming around the Maliau Basin Conservation Area.

WWF Malaysia head for conservation in Sabah Dr John Tay said that the tragic deaths were worrying because the movement patterns of one of the collared herds showed that the area was part of their home range.
