Elephant Sanctuary Malaysia

Welcome to Kuala Gandah The national Department of Wildlife and National Parks established the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary in 1989. The center is a base for the elephant relocation team, which began the translocation program in 1974. Being the only one of its kind in Malaysia, the team's duty is to track down, sedating and relocating problem elephants from areas whose natural habitats are constantly encroached by human developments, namely plantations. The captured wild elephants are then relocated to National Parks. Over the past 25 years the 24 strong team has helped the prevent the further decline of the elephant population by relocating more than 500 wild elephants.

Deer Sanctuary

This deer sanctuary is situated in Bukit Rengit, Lanchang, about 140km from Kuantan. Traverse the park's 'Nature Garden' on an elevated boardwalk and marvel at its varieties of herbs and plants. The highlight of a visit here will be the interesting and fascinating deer-feeding session.


The park's 'Animal World' offers attractions such as ostriches, peacocks, deer and a sunbear. Visitors can also go camping or join a guided tour to learn basic jungle survival skills.

The Elephants at the Center There are currently 8 residence elephants, 2 of which are from Thailand to assist in the wild elephant relocation exercise namely Cek Mek and Mek Bunga. Mentompian, a 26-year-old female from Burma, and Abot, a teenage female from Johor, are both being trained to replace the 2 aging elephants. The center also looks after orphaned elephants, which are unable to survive on their own. Mawar, 2 years old and Chepor (3 years) are such two orphan elephants - found lost and wandering by the relocations team that decided to assume the role of parents to this lovely cute baby elephants! The one and only male elephant in the center, Chepor will be the star among them

 

 

 
 

Kuala Gandah Elephant Conservation Centre, or popularly referred to as the Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary, is located within the bio diversified-rich and protected Krau Game Reserve & was set up in 1989 under the DWNP <Department of Wildlife & National Parks, Malaysia>, manned by the Elephant Capture & Translocation Unit .


The Teris River acts as a natural border between the reserve and the Che' wong Orang Asli village
- the last tribe of its kind found in Malaysia. The name Kuala Gandah is, itself, taken from the small stream running near the electric compound enclosure which houses the elephants during the day from 830am to 2pm before they are transferred to the roofed holding area.

Prior to this arrangement, the ECTU was a mobile operating team since its establishment in 1974 with a temporary base at the Jengka Pusat plantation where a huge area of jungle was carved to
make way for the planting of oil palm and rubber trees and given to poor families to work on as a means of eradicating poverty amongst the rural folk and to rid of subversive hideouts during the communist insurgency days in the 1970s.

The clearing of the jungles created consistent confrontations between the wild elephants and the settlers. The unit remained there until 1981 before it moved to Kuala Lompat on the north eastern side of Krau Game Reserve.

However, it must be noted that cutting down of the forests here are done for the overall benefit of the people of Malaysia within the poverty line and compared to any other countries in the world
- Malaysia has THE BEST record in forest preservation AND reforestation.

Find out the world's 10 BIGGEST CULPRITS that keep on warming up the fragile world and yet blames Malaysia for supposedly cutting down all the forests. Go to http://unfccc.int/2860.php

ECTU's dedicated and never ending function is to the continued protection and translocation of wild elephants, from areas where there is conflict between wild elephants and humans, into bigger and safer jungle reserves land while educating locals on the correct steps to protect their farms whilst supporting wildlife conservation.

This unit is one of its kind in the world where the possibilities of being charged or trampled by enraged wild elephants happens for 2/3 weeks every month! It is a thankless job where only a very tiny percentage of  the general public is aware of the existence, dedication and sacrifices these magnificent men make every month in order to provide a win-win situation for both the wild elephants and the human planters!

Currently, there are 32 full time and 6 contracted staff working, living in and near the centre complete with housing facilities.

Water is supplied and piped in from the upper reaches of the cool, clear and clean Sungai Batu waterfalls which lies within the gazetted " Protected Areas " of the Krau Game Reserve while
electricity supply is on a 24 hour basis.

Although the sanctuary was set up in late 1989, it was only in 1997 that the general Malaysian public and the world knew of its existence, thanks to the far sighted of a very good friend of the sanctuary, who is often referred to as The Elephant Man!

Not only did he suggested, created activities and led surprised visitors to this sanctuary, but unselfishly invited the media, tourist guides and travel agencies to see what the sanctuary has to offer as he realised that the sanctuary IS for everyone!

The rest, as they say....is history.

If you do meet him here during one of his volunteering visits
- feel free to ask anything there is about the sanctuary and elephants over a cup of tea and he will make your day a very unforgetable one for you! Be warned though - he will try his best to
convince you to pass the good word around and get material donations for the ETCU!
