“Lane Xang”, the “Land of One Million Elephants”, as Laos once proudly called itself, is nowadays home for probably not more than 650 elephants with a clear downward trend. About a tenth of these animals still live in “Phou Khao Khouay” National Protected Area This 2000 km² nature reserve is the closest to Vientiane, the capital of Laos. The park is surrounded by numerous human settlements with subsequent threat of encroachment and illegal hunting and plant collection. The government funding for conservation activities is insufficient.
