Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary





This centre (Elephant Sanctuary) was established in 1989 by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks to function as a base for the Elephant Relocation Team which started in 1974.

Being the only centre in Malaysia, the team is dedicated to locating, subduing, translucent problem elephants from areas where their habitats are constantly being encroached by plantations, to Malaysia's National Parks such as Taman Negara.

Over the past 25 years the strong team has helped to prevent the further decline of the elephant population by relocating more than 300 wild elephants!

Kuala Gandah also aims to promote public awareness of the elephant's plight in Malaysia and to support research into elephant translocation and conservation. It also aims to educate the public about the importance of habitat and environmental preservation.
