Adopt Freda

Freda lives in a large herd of over 30 Sumatran elephants in the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem. Freda was collared for the first time in July 2013. Her most recent collar was put on in October 2016. For many years Freda’s family had its core home range within a commercial f

orest concession, but large-scale clear cutting and widespread forest fires have destroyed most of Freda’s original habitat.  In order to search for food, Freda and the herd moved eastwards, into the southern buffer of the Bukit Tigapuluh National Park, where they sometimes join with Indah’s herd for a few weeks.

 

IEP is working on measures to improve habitat quality within Freda’s range, in order to minimize the human/elephant conflict and hopefully allow a better and safer life for Freda and her herd in the future.
