Biodiversity and Elephant Conservation Trust

Helping to protect Asian elephants & other animals that live in Sri Lanka.

Over the last 100 years the Asian elephant population has declined by 90% to less than 50,000 elephants, with only 4,000-5,000 remaining in Sri Lanka. The Asian elephant is classified as endangered (IUCN) and the decline in its numbers has been a result of threats including habitat loss as a result of logging and agriculture, domestication for tourism and logging, human-elephant conflict and hunting for their body parts, particularly their tusks. The Biodiversity and Elephant Conservation Trust (BECT) is a small charity based in Sri Lanka who aim to educate, inform and change people’s attitudes towards these magnificent animals.
