The Elephant In Our Room
The orang asli in the Royal Belum State Park are becoming increasingly exposed to foraging elephants, who eat all their crops and destroy their homes.
And it’s not the elephants’ fault. As many as 36 wild elephants have been translocated into the state park by the Wildlife Department since 2010, doubling the elephant population in the area.
R.AGE spent several days living with the orang asli to film this documentary, and saw just how dangerous this human-animal conflict has become.
