Javan elephants went extinct some time after Europeans arrived in southeast Asia, but roughly 1,000 elephants exist today on Borneo. These elephants, which are mostly limited to the Malaysian state of Sabah in northeastern Borneo, are losing habitat to logging and oil palm plantations.

Rapid forest conversions has hit Sumatran and Bornean elephants hard. From 1985, hundreds were taken to Sumatran Elephant Training Centres to stop conflict. Many died. Intense conflict remains.

2008: population: 1,180-1,557 Sumatra. No Borneo estimate (Sukumar 2008)
