Taman Negara National Park holds the largest population with at least 290-350 elephants as estimated by the DWNP (although a dung-count survey estimated this population as 631, with a 95% CI of 436-915; WCS 2008). This is mainly because Taman Negara is the largest protected area (4343 km2), including vast extensions of lowland primary forest, and has been the main release area for translocated conflict elephants since 1983.

2009: A population of 631 Asian elephants has been documented in Malaysia's Taman Negara National Park, reports the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). The population may be the largest in Southeast Asia.
