Adopt Cinta

Cinta, meaning ‘love’ in Bahasa Indonesia, is a beautiful adult female Sumatran elephant, living in the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem. She was first collared in July 2012 and was re-collared in January 2014 in order to replace the already quite battered old collar. This second collar was replaced in August 2015.

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.
