Meet the rangers from our elephant patrol unit. Ali Pristiyono, 28 Years Old, FKL Ranger for five Months, From Sukamulya Village. @wildlifeasia
"The reason I joined FKL Ranger Elephant unit was because I want to protect the elephants by tracking and identify them. If we know their migration route, we can avoid elephants/human conflict. I want to collecting more data about elephants even though sometimes I get scared, if I'm too close to them when tracking.
I found a calf all alone early this year (January) and not far from him, was his poisoned mother and also not far from her was a dead male that was shot. Sadly we still don't have anymore information." Photo: Paul Hilton
