The next collar session (to replace collar number three) was scheduled for September 2017 but an accident during the early stages of the collaring session prevented the collaring going ahead. Currently, Cinta’s collar is set to an interval of eight hours to preserve the batteries until a follow up collaring session can be organized.
Cinta and her herd used to have their core home range in an extended lowland forest patch which directly connects to the southern part of the Bukit Tigapuluh National Park. Since 2014 however, Cinta and her family often joined with other female groups in the area, forming a large clan of more than 60 elephants.
It looks like Cinta has now entirely switched her home range to the southern parts of the landscape, joining with Anna and Ginting most of the time. While food is abundant there, the risk for human-elephant conflict (HEC) is high, requiring constant monitoring and conflict mitigation by our teams.
By adopting Cinta today, you are helping fund our activities to protect her and her friends from the threats they face. You will receive regular updates on their progress as they are cared for in our facilities, with the hope of eventually returing to the jungle.
Depending on the adoption package you purchase you will receive
an adoption pack for yourself or your loved ones.
