Three generations of Bornean elephant pass through a palm oil plantation, in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. Palm oil is now one of Malaysia’s most lucrative exports. However, these profits don’t come without costs.
Human-elephant conflict is on the rise. Pushed into smaller pockets of jungle, elephants are increasingly found in plantations.
