orest concession, but large-scale clear cutting and widespread forest fires have destroyed most of Freda’s original habitat. In order to search for food, Freda and the herd moved eastwards, into the southern buffer of the Bukit Tigapuluh National Park, where they sometimes join with Indah’s herd for a few weeks.
IEP is working on measures to improve habitat quality within Freda’s range, in order to minimize the human/elephant conflict and hopefully allow a better and safer life for Freda and her herd in the future.
By adopting Freda today, you are making a symbolic but incredibly powerful gesture. By adopting one elephant, you are helping to safeguard their entire herd. You are supporting them, their kinfolk and their precious calves, and you are actively protecting their jungle habitat against poaching, logging and illegal encroachment. Thank you for helping us protect this critical population of Sumatran Elephants.
Depending on the adoption package you purchase you will receive
an adoption pack for yourself or your loved ones.
