The Asian elephant, also known as the Asiatic elephant, is the only living species of the genus Elephas and is distributed throughout the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, from India in the west, Nepal in the north, Sumatra in the south, and to Borneo in the east.

Between 2006-2015, around 111,000 African elephants were lost from the wild, mainly due to poaching, and between 2007-2014 30% of Africa's savannah elephants were lost. The WWF estimate that around 20,000 African elephants are being killed each year for their ivory - that's an average of 55 a day. The surviving population of Asian elephants is estimated between 30,000–50,000, one-tenth of the population of African elephants.
