Elephant's pregnancy period is around 2 years, and once their baby is born, it takes around 10 years for the baby elephant to be independence (male elephant will go individuals while the female will follow the herd) this is one of the reasons why the elephant categorize as critical endangered animal beside the poaching and poisoning cases. #tfcasumatera #elephantfamily #elephantconservation #savetheelephants #savewildlife
VESSWIC fun fact! did you know? trimming on elephant ivory serves to reduce the aggressiveness of elephants, as well as facilitate the mahout in interacting in the training process of the elephant #tfcasumatera #elephants #saveelephants #conservation #elephantconservation #savewildlife

Captive elephants can be used to assist the community in sick elephant rescue as well as for elephant rescue which is separate from its herds. #sumatranelephant #saveelephants #elephantrescue #conservation #wildlifeconservation
EEHV (elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus) can cause severe haemorrhagic disease in elephants, and is associated with a high fatality rate in young Asian elephant (1-8 years of age) this condition is one of the reason why Asian elephant, especially Sumatran elephant is categorize as critical endanger animal and therefore, conservation is a must to keep them from extinction and make them still exist as a precious wildlife treasure! #tfcasumatera #elephantfamily #elephantworld #elephantconservation #saveelephants #conservation
regular visit is a must for checking out the health of elephant. measuring weight and height, blood sampling, and anthelmintic giving is part of VESSWIC regular visit in each ETC and CRU every 6 month. This activity is not only to checking up the elephant, but also to monitoring this critical endanger creature’s  health and maintaining their body condition. #tfcasumatera #elephantfamily #saveelephants #saveelephantfoundation #conservation #elephantconservation
the inauguration of Aek Nauli Elephant Conservation Camp (ANECC) by the KSDAE general director of Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) is the ultimate achievement of conservation action strategies and plans of Sumatran elephant  since 2007-2017 which recommends the distribution of elephant population from Elephant Training Center (ETC) to elephant breeding group utilization unit and conservation type.
