Wildlife experts in Asian countries are committed to protecting the elephant, the largest animal found on land.

At the 3rd Asian Elephant Range State Meeting held in Nepal, experts from 13 countries where elephants are found have expressed their commitment to save the elephants. The number of elephants in the world is decreasing every year. The number of elephants is declining especially due to encroachment of habitat.


According to the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation, the number of elephants is declining due to loss of corridor connection, settlement outside the protected area, human-wildlife conflict, loss of elephant corridor and possible disease risk.

 The three-day meeting on elephant conservation began on April 27, 2022.


The Asian Elephant Range State Meeting (AsERSM) was organized with the objective of understanding the challenges faced by Asian Elephants and finding solutions to them. The meeting expressed commitment to strengthen the government network between the Asian Elephant Range countries.


At the event, delegates from various countries discussed various issues related to Asian elephant conservation, including elephant population management, reduction of human-elephant conflict, management of elephant corridors and prevention of illegal wildlife trade.

Elephants are listed as an endangered species. The National Red List of Mammals classifies it as an endangered species.
