Sumatran Elephants

INDONESIA, Blang Tualang : In this photograph taken on July 28, 2013, a carcass of an endangered Sumatran elephant is seen in a palm oil plantation in Blang Tualang village in Aceh province, Sumatra. Indonesian authorities on July 29 were investigating the incident after another elephant was found dead two weeks ago in another district, as rampant expansion of palm oil, paper plantations, and mines, has destroyed nearly 70 percent of the Sumatran elephant’s forest habitat over 25 years, conservationist says.
