It said a semi-wildlife conservation centre would be built to protect elephant herds, while helping tourists to view the magnificent animals.

In  二0 一 八, AnimalsAsia also offered funding of $ 六 五,000 to stop elephant tours in the park.

According to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Việt Nam’s four Asian elephant herds, comprising  六0 or  七0 elephants, have been preserved in the provincial Yok Đôn National Park.

Wild elephant population is still under threat of poaching, while their habitats are being narrowed by farming.

Director of Đắk Lắc Elephant Conservation Centre Huỳnh Trung Luân said elephants used for tourism activities had been living in poor conditions.

Luân said the  四 三 elephants that were still kept by households in the province were not expected to live over  四0 years old, and no calves had been born in more than  一0 years.

WWF-Việt Nam said it had given top priority to Asian elephant conservation in the  二0 一 六- 二0 period.

WWF-Việt Nam has been jointly working with the Forestry Administration of Việt Nam to build a cross-border management project of biodiversity, nature and conservation of Asian elephant and tigers between Đắk Lắk and Mondulkiri in Cambodia. — VNS
