Wild Asian elephants live in some of the most densely human-populated regions of the world. They also require large areas of habitat and lots of food, which puts them in frequent and sometimes deadly conflict with people. Logging, development and agriculture to produce crops such as oil palms have drastically reduced elephant habitat throughout Asia. Poaching for ivory, meat and other products also takes a significant toll on elephant populations.
