In the biologically rich forests of Borneo, home to orangutans and pygmy Asian elephants, Farina Othman is exploring creative ways to reduce human-elephant conflicts. As the native forests are cleared to grow crops,  elephants are forced to graze in farms and palm oil plantations, sometimes with tragic results. Farina, a native Malaysian pursuing her Ph.D. in Conservation Biology and Genetics, is using the latest technology to track their movements. Her results are helping to improve conservation planning and reduce conflicts. The Oregon Zoo invites you to an evening with Farina as she shares efforts underway to save the wild elephants of Borneo. Learn how you can join Farina’s journey to make Borneo a better place for elephants.
